This is a last minute suggestion. Watch the trailer below and go see Mary & Bill this Wednesday June 26 at 7:00pm.
If the film is as good as the trailer, we are all in for a treat!
“‘Mary and Bill’ is a feature length documentary about Mary Stroebe, a 90-year-old triathlete, and Bill Wambach, an 83-year-old high jumper who holds the National record in his age bracket. Bill was also named “Male Athlete of the Year” by the National Congress of State Games, and Mary appeared on the Regis and Kelly Show and received a “Relly award”. The film follows Mary and Bill immediately after they experience health related problems. Mary just broke her leg while down hill skiing and Bill, who smoked for 45 years, is recovering from a heart attack. Through their amazing commitment, both Mary and Bill prove that age is just a number. For three years Andrew Napier, the young filmmaker followed Mary Stroebe and Bill Wambach around in order to document their extraordinary lives. After two additional years of editing and post production, Andrew is excited to be able to finally share their incredible story.
As hard as it is to believe, the film never found a distributor. Now is your chance to see it.
