TIFF Inspirations: In Your Dreams

In Your Dreams*
USA, 2013
World Premiere
109 minutes - Colour
Cast: Michael and Barb Pimento

Just days after his retirement, Sheldon Monroe surprised his wife Doreen with the announcement that he'd like the couple to relocate from their quaint Vermont home and move to beautiful Florence to pursue his dream of becoming a great pastry chef.

The news was a devastating blow to their 3 grown kids, who couldn't remember their dad even attempting to make a Pillsbury Crescent roll in their lifetime. After 35 years of marriage, Doreen was especially looking forward to spending their twilight years comfortably in Florida. Still, Sheldon was convinced that his lifelong passion wouldn't materialize in the "Sunshine State." It had to be Florence.

Against her better judgement, Doreen agrees to sell their house and use their retirement funds to help fulfill Sheldon's dream. However, the risky venture wouldn't be without huge consequences that could possibly rip their marriage apart.

In Your Dreams is an enchanting comedy that reminds us that you are never too old to follow your dreams.
