In "Youth," Michael Caine plays Fred, a retired classical musician vacationing with his best friend (Harvey Keitel) in the Swiss Alps when he is asked to perform one of his popular pieces at Prince Phillip's birthday party. Declining the invitation sends the septuagenarian into a tailspin of nostalgia while surrounded by his hotel's eclectic inhabitants, including his daughter (Rachel Weisz). The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have an exclusive clip in which Fred declines the royal request for a touching reason that brings tears to his daughter's eyes.
Written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino ("The Great Beauty"), the old-age meditation has won mostly raves since premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May. It opens theatrically on Dec. 4.
