The New York Times has a story about a few baby boomers who've bought into Florida retirement communities, where prices are low and the neighbors may be decades older.
The prices really are tempting. But before you hop on a plane to Boca, you might want to check out "Kings Point." The Oscar-nominated documentary short makes its TV debut at 9 p.m. Monday on HBO.
Filmmaker Sari Gilman follows the lives of several residents of the retirement community where her grandmother lived for many years. It's one of those places couples moved to when they wanted warmer weather and no worries and the companionship of their own generation. But as Gilman's film shows, life may be full of compromises, especially for those left widowed.
More a series of snapshots than a fully realized story, "Kings Point" reminds us that aging isn't for sissies and all the warm weather in the world isn't going to stop it from happening.
