Written by Andrew Bergman, one of Hollywood's top comedy screenwriters (Blazing Saddles, Soapdish, The Freshman), Social Security was a 1986 Broadway hit under the direction of Mike Nichols and starring Marlo Thomas, Joanna Gleason, and a then-unknown Olympia Dukakis.
Trendy Manhattan art gallery owners Trudy and David Kahn have their life turned upside-down when Trudy's sister deposits their eccentric mother Sophie on the couple's doorstep while she and her husband Martin Head off to rescue their sexually precocious college student daughter from a ménage a trios. When wise cracking Sophie meets up with legendary French painter Maurice Koenig, she (and the rest of the family) discovers that it's never too late to find love.
