Manchester by the Sea, Jackie, La La Land, and Loving are among this year’s Top 10 Movies for Grownups, according to the editors and movie critics of AARP The Magazine, whose Movies For Grownups® initiative spotlights the best writing, acting, and filmmaking that resonates with audiences with a grownup state of mind.

“The 50-plus movie audience has a unique perspective on the impact relationships have on our lives,” says Myrna Blyth, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director for AARP Media. “This year’s Top 10 list tackles the subject of complex human relationships from all angles—family ties, grownup love, and longtime friendship among them. Most importantly, it’s a wonderfully eclectic mix of the year’s most appealing, entertaining, and thought-provoking films for the 50-plus moviegoer.”

In selecting 2016’s Top 10 Movies for Grownups®, AARP The Magazine’s editors focused on exemplary work by filmmakers, actors, and cinematic artists who are 50-plus—as well as themes and subjects of particular interest to an audience with a grownup perspective. They are:

Arrival
Fences
Hello, My Name is Doris
Jackie
La La Land
Lion
Loving
Manchester by the Sea
Silence
Sully

The year’s best picture honoree will be chosen from the Top 10 list. All of the 2016 winners will be honored at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills on Monday, February 6, 2017.
