The Bubble

The Bubble

European Premiere
Welcome to Florida’s Friendliest Hometown: The Villages is America’s largest retirement community, with 96 recreation centres, 54 golf courses, 70 swimming pools, 3 old-fashioned town squares, and some 3000 social clubs. However, beneath the year-round Floridian sunshine, everyday reality might not be as idyllic or welcomed as many imagine. An engaging, provocative yet compassionate contemplation of American ways of life, ageing, and death.
