No one really grows up when they are a kid, there is no magic moment where you suddenly wake up and you are new. Instead, growing up is an infinite series of almost-invisible moments of minute change. Here we learn with elderly men, a pair of siblings who have recently been minted adults, and young cats who can’t meow. Coming out of these films won’t make you fresh or new, but they might give you the opportunity to think about the little changes you might have missed.
