40 Years Younger

 2010 Scriptapalooza QUARTERFINALIST

Romantic Comedy

Jack Moody has been searching for his “soul mate” his whole life and thinks he’s finally found her in Wendy, the new hairstylist at the Florida nursing home where he lives… problem is—she’s 35 and he’s 79.

Jack’s eccentric best friend, Mimi, talks him into participating in an ancient spell that will grant him one wish on his 80th birthday. Jack’s wish, to be forty years younger, materializes. He revels in his younger body and courts Wendy, pretending to be his non-existent son, but she is not as enraptured with Jack as he is with himself. Jack must come to terms with the last chapter of his life. With or without his soul mate.
