This paper presents a detailed examination of self-care for a movie family, as seen in "Grumpier Old Men" and applied to Dorothea Orem's self-care framework concept. The writer explores the movie characters and compares them against theory to explain what the characters do for their self initiated activities and care.

From the Paper:

"The movie Grumpier Old Men is a perfect silver screen production for the purpose of analyzing the theory as it relates to family because the family includes young adults, middle aged adults and senior citizens. One of the theory's most fundamental concepts relates to self care and self initialized activities. The two main characters, Max and John are senior citizens who have been fighting with each other for more than three decades. In the movie, John is married and people in the family believe that Max is missing out by not being married too."
