Elsa & Fred is a 2014 American comedy-drama film directed by Michael Radford and starring Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer. The film, set and filmed in New Orleans, is an English-language remake of the 2005 Argentinian film of the same name.


The recently widowed, 80-year-old Fred Barcroft is moved against his will, by his daughter, into an apartment in New Orleans, next door to 74-year-old Elsa Hayes. Fred has become an embittered, inactive realist who spends most of his time lying down; Elsa is a flighty, vivacious romanticist who dreams of "the sweet life in Rome," as experienced by Anita Ekberg in the 1961 film La Dolce Vita. Despite their opposite temperaments and outlooks on life, they fall in love.
