2012 was a great year for senior actors. According to AARP, this year’s films did a good job of including older actors in starring roles and in releasing films aimed at more mature audiences. Even the Golden Globes recognized the trend, with nominations going to Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Bill Murray, Sally Field, and Judi Dench. Celebrating this new trend, the AARP has announced their picks for this year’s best movies for grownups.

AARP’s Top Ten Movies For Grownups for 2012

· Argo
· Amour
· Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
· Hitchcock
· Les Miserables
· Lincoln
· Quartet
· The Sessions
· Silver Linings Playbook
· Zero Dark Thirty

Says Bill Newcott, host of AARP’s weekly Movies for Grownups radio show: “This year was an especially good year for grownup movies thanks to outstanding work not only from Hollywood legends, but from extraordinary newcomers, as well.”
