Our Souls at Night. Film Tie-In
This is a love story.
A story about growing old with grace.
Addie Moore and Louis Waters have been neighbours for years. Now they both live alone, their houses empty of family, their quiet nights solitary. Then one evening Addie pays Louis a visit.
Their brave adventures form the beating heart of Our Souls at Night, Kent Haruf's exquisite final novel.
