This title needs work. Elderly Lead Actors / Starring a Senior Citizen / something like that

What is your age threshold - some of these are in their 50s.

I suggest removing these titles for the following reason:
Ikiru - Watanabe is middle aged, not elderly. 
Gandhi - the film covers his entire life, starting at age 27, not just when he was elderly.
Benjamin Button - the film covers his whole life AND though he started out LOOKING old, he was actually young by years and had been born at the start of the film.

From your list my pick is The Straight Story.

FYC:
Mother (with Debbie Reynolds)
Harry Brown
Cocoon

This list is by no measure comprehensive. Think about making this a two parter - maybe 1920s to '80s and '90s on? Or maybe comedy and drama.

Mauri,

Jen is right. Plus, I think you should remove animated films and my suggestion:

1. Black (2005)
2. Pink (2016)

Both are Indian movies rated more than 8/10 stars. I'd love to see these two on your list. And my vote would be 'Pink (2016)'.
