“Necking” is a meditation on love, dating, and the longevity of relationships from the perspective of those who know the subject better than anyone else—our elders. In this film, we’ll hear from three couples (all of whom have been married for over fifty years) and one widow as they muse over their relationships and offer some wise words about how to make a marriage work. These vignettes remind us that despite all the odds, true love really is still alive and kicking.
