Older woman, Younger Man, Relationship - Movies

Updated on October 28, 2015

Relationships are quite complex and one can spend entire life trying to unlock the mysteries of romantic relationships. But what if you have taken the mess a step ahead by going against the norms of society.

Society dictates a certain constraint that a man should be elder than the woman, a couple of years of difference is ok but what if the age difference is over a decade.

Even if you can ignore the society, how about the practical problems, who do you look for answers, how do you "not blame the age difference for every common problem that probably every couple faces".

Movies share an idea that has been well worked on by a team of experts that is passionate about the whole concept. Here I am trying to list some of the movies from my collection that focuses specifically on these certain kind of relations.

The Rebound

I really love this movie as it is very focused on relationships where the man is younger than the woman. And it beautifully portrays the practical problems such couples face in day to day life.

This movie well shows how society plays it role in making it difficult for such couples to prosper but does not make it scapegoat and goes on to exploring different aspects of relationships that many major titles fail to cover.

My Rating: 6/10
IMDB Rating: 6.4/10

The Reader

This movie is an intense drama and goes on in phases. You can feel the pain of characters and imagine what kind of brutal realities they are going through and gain a few points of maturity.

However, this movie is set in history and might seem fictional but with some imagination you can actually absorb the thought which is going to be difficult to describe in words.

Overall this movie excels in every front and Kate Winslet's amazing performance makes this movie a must watch.

My Rating: 7.5/10
IMDB Rating: 7.6/10


There were parts of the movie that I found quite funny. This movies shows the high and the low of a complex relationship where the man is younger than the woman. Movie starts in passion and gradually drifts in troubles followed by usual saturation point of any relation. It seems that the movie intended to demonstrate how two who construct a couple can be at different states of life but unfortunately was unable to demonstrate it in contrast.

I found this movie very enjoyable and entertaining.

The Trotsky

This movies holds and amazing story of a young boy who thinks he is reincarnation of Leon Trotsky and is determined to follow his ideas. Mostly the movie revolves around how he aspires and acts in order to be more like Leon Trotsky and one part of the movie concentrates on him believing that he will marry a woman elder to him just like Leon Trotsky and falls in love and pursues her in amusing ways.

It is funny yet interesting to see how much he tries to convince this woman he loves.

My Rating: 7/10
IMDB Rating: 6.9/10

Broken English

Broken English is a story of desperation, exploration and realization. A woman in her thirties is being constantly tormented with concerns and annoying compassion of couples all around her. She is very depressed and filled with anxiety, such is the pressure of society, being lonely that it starts driving an individual's entire life.

She finds a relation of passion and excitement but that was never the solution to her life condition and once again she finds herself in middle of the same anxiety, same depression. This time she decides on taking an action to find the lost love. Instead her life pushes her in the quest of true meaning of life and she goes on to have her realization.

My Rating: 7/10
IMDB Rating: 6.3/10

Meet Monica Velour

This movies focuses on these two individuals rather than their relation together. The boy has fallen in love with this porn start whose career was at peak in the 80's. And he does not has anything else going on in his life apart from this obsession and he decides to pursue her.

From the glamour of being a porn start to now not even having a job. She is struggling to earn enough to be able to support her child.

It is amazing how two different sides of life can be seen on the same screen in this movie. On one side you will see passion, determination and clarity of a young mind whose entire life revolves around just one person. It might seem immature or lack of experience but who is to say that life experience only makes one into a coward who can't even decide what he really wants.

And on the other side you will see the woman facing extreme realities of life and someone who has seen enough to have the bitter attitude towards world and her existence itself.

It is difficult to say if it is her wisdom with which she feels the way she does about this young man's feelings or his pure emotions, his lack of corruption that he is so passionate.

My Rating: 8/10
IMDB Rating: 5.7/10


It is a fictional movie set in a world where people conceive people who have died and they loved them a lot. After her boyfriend dies she decides to conceive him and bring him to life again. The movie shows the emotion of woman who wants to keep her love alive and struggling at the same time with the dilemma of having unusual feelings for her own son.

As time passes by she watches her son grow and become more and more of the man who she had loved immensely.

This is quite a serious movie that moves at a very steady pace and renders a complex drama as it goes on.

My Rating: 7.5/10
IMDB Rating: 6.4/10

      Wow, I had not idea there were so many. I've seen the Reader, it's a very sad movie. I haven't seen the other two.

      An old movie you might want to add is The Graduate with Dustin Hoffman.
