On Golden Pond, by Ernest Thompson: Norman and Ethel Thayer are a couple in their twilight years, and the infirmities of age threaten their 48th summer on Golden Pond. When their semi-estranged daughter comes for a visit with a boyfriend and a smart-mouthed 13-year-old boy in tow, tension is in the air. While On Golden Pond is loaded with humorous one-liners and witty sarcasm, it’s also an old fashioned love story that explores the often turbulent relationship between the daughter and her father growing up, the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, and burying the hatchet in order to pursue a fresh start.
