John Lithgow and Blythe Danner play septuagenarian oddballs who fall for each other in “The Tomorrow Man,” written and directed by Noble Jones. These small-town eccentrics live in an unnamed part of the American Midwestern-heartland, and possibly the site of a foreseeable doomsday scenario. But at heart “The Tomorrow Man” is a gentle love story, and the fun comes from watching actors at the top of their gameplay the wonkiest couple imaginable in hilariously awkward courtship scenes.
The Tomorrow Man
Not many of us are called to stories that center the Midwest, but for writer-director Noble Jones, who is a native New Yorker, there has always been something beautiful about small-town America.
