Verdict on Sue
Sue is a documentary following the director trying to help her 97-year-old find love once again. It shows how the lonely Sue has many friends but at her age, finding love had becoming difficult. Using online dating, they help fulfil her dream and dive head first into the dating game.
This might only be a short documentary, but you can see the passion put into it by Nancye Ferguson. She only wants the best for her mother and for her to have what everyone wants happiness. It feels like a series of home videos covering a couple of years with Sue’s new boyfriend and gives everyone hope that love can happen at any age.
Final Thoughts – Sue is a delightful short documentary about finding love at any age.
