Mr. and Mrs. Reeves
A young woman, a tour guide on a cruise ship, befriends an elderly couple after they announce politely that they would ‘prefer not to’ go on the luxury cruise their son has booked for them. They’d rather go to see a film. This old-fashioned modesty creates a turning point in the young woman’s life. The couple’s kindness, generosity and appreciation of simple pleasures help her cling on to her own humanity in the face of the demands of modern life.
