Badass Nursing Home Residents Re-Enact Iconic Movie Scenes
This beautiful and witty project held in nursing homes across Germany shows us that having fun has little to do with your age. The retirement community released an entertaining calendar of nursing home residents between 75 and 98 years of age who have reenacted scenes from iconic Hollywood movies. Costumes, wigs and make-up helped transform the models into famous movie stars – from James Dean and Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe and Patrick Swayze.
The “Classics 2014” calendar was created as a gift to nursing home residents, employees and family members. It surely shakes up some of the depressing stereotypes about what it’s like to be retired and living in the nursing home.
