Screen legend Diane Keaton picks up the pom-poms and proves it’s never too late for second acts – and the chance to have the time of your life – in POMS, a comedy about staying forever young and the everlasting power of friendship.

Synopsis
Just 45 minutes outside of Phoenix, Arizona, lies the picture-perfect retirement community of Sun City. It’s a place where palm trees line the streets, the skies are always clear and the Sun City “taxi” (the residents’ name for the ambulance) drives by two or three times a day – a final destination for retirees to live out their golden years in comfort. From this unlikely setting come the Sun City Poms, America’s first cheerleading squad for women aged over 60. This is their story. POMS has all the tantrums, triumphs and mind-boggling dance moves you’d expect from an all-American cheerleading film. But beyond the bright lipstick and razzle dazzle we see something more unique and delightful: women in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s shaking their thing. It’s a darkly comedic, life-affirming tale of mortality and ageing, cut to a foot-stomping soundtrack.
