I'll See You In My Dreams movie quotes follows one older woman's struggles with starting life anew after losing most everything she hold dear. The comedy-drama was directed by Brett Haley using a screenplay he co-wrote with Marc Basch. After premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, I'll See You In My Dreams opened in theaters on May 15, 2015.

In I'll See You In My Dreams, Carol (Blythe Danner) is a widowed 70-something who, after the recent loss of her dog, has lost interest in most things that formerly made her happy. She still attends her regular bridge game with friends (including June Squibb, Rhea Perlman and Mary Kay Place) and those friends inspire her to get out of her funk.

Though her mission starts off with a stumble at a speed dating event, she eventually makes a new friend in the much younger pool boy Lloyd (Martin Starr), reconnects with her daughter Katherine (Malin Akerman) and even finds a new romance in Bill (Sam Elliott). Just when she felt like her life was over and she was just waiting for death, Carol realizes that she has a lot move living yet to do.

I'll See You In My Dreams opens alongside other great May 2015 films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Pitch Perfect 2, Playing It Cool, Hot Pursuit and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
