Now, as an aging community faces its own mortality, paradise has begun to exact a higher price. Through the experiences of five longtime residents, ‘Kings Point’ captures both the allure and the darker complexities of living in a world where “nobody gets too close.” Poignant, funny and dark, ‘Kings Point’ is an empathetic portrait of the last act of the American dream.
