‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Wins Best Movie for Grownups at the AARP Awards

Feeling your age today? This may or may not help – Star Wars: The Last Jedi was named Best Movie for Grownups at the 17th Annual AARP Movies for Grownups Awards!  Mark Hamill and Kelly Marie Tran were on hand to present director Rian Johnson with the award. The Last Jedi beat out competition such as Get Out, Lady Bird, The Shape of Water, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Best Movie for Grownups: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

For 40 years, Star Wars has been the movie of our generations — the generations 50 and older — and The Last Jedi is the episode that honors them all. In an industry that’s too often preoccupied with youth, the film respects the past, taking us back to fond memories — yet it is also of the moment, innovative, vital and in touch with a vast public. And speaking of touch, Mark Hamill has just the right one as an older and wiser Luke Skywalker. In Jedi, the actor and his character passed the baton to a new generation. Hamill and costar Kelly Marie Tran presented director Rian Johnson with our top film award.

The ceremony will be televised for the first time ever on Friday, February 23. Check your local PBS listings for times.
