Aurora Borealis is a coming of age film, not only for young adults, but their elderly grandparents. This film was a feature selection at Tribeca Film Festival. This story focuses on a young man who's father died when he was a teenager, his mother has moved away, so his parental relationship is with his grandparents. Grandma is in good shape, but Grandpa is in declining health. He was the boy's rock, now the roles are reversed. Sensitive, real and touching, this story is well written and acted. Well worth a rental.
