You’re going to need tissues for this one… The most heart-piercingly human tale of the 1930s (and the inspiration for Ozu’s Tokyo Story) follows the trials of an elderly, resolutely old-fashioned couple (Victor Moore and Beulah Bondi) who, after they lose their home, are forced to live separately with their oh-so-busy adult children. Sensitively directed by the ever-empathetic Leo McCarey as part of a remarkable mid-’30s run that included The Awful Truth and Ruggles of Red Gap, Make Way for Tomorrow is all the more poignant for the stoic restraint with which it treats its themes of aging and the gulf between parents and children.
