The Gist: A retired orchestra conductor and his film director best friend, on a vacation in an exclusive resort, have daily conversations and interactions with a varied and colorful array of vacationers.

Michael Caine is as magnificent as always, and it's a delight to see how sharp his acting skills still are at his age. Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano, and Jane Fonda all do a great job.

The Bottom Line: Youth is not a movie for just everyone. The story is very relatable, but the visual storytelling is a bit meta. It's in the vein of Fellini or Altman, in a way, and might therefore turn some people off.
