Nursing home residents recreate classic movie scenes

When I’m older, put my name down on the list for the Contilia Retirement Home in Essen, Germany. First spotted on Reddit, this calendar of elderly people dressing up as iconic movie characters is starting to go viral. Take a look at some of these pics and it’s hard not to crack a smile!

We’ve got Jack and Rose from Titanic, James Bond, Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and even Rocky Balboa. And for anyone who’s asking – “James Bond” is 89, Jack and Rose are 81 and 86 respectively, and the Blues Brothers are in their 70s. Not bad at all!
