The 5 Best Movies For Mature Audiences In 2013

And we have to say, the studios sure didn't disappoint in 2013. Post 50s make up around a quarter of all moviegoers and that number is likely to keep growing, with studios churning out hits like "Gravity" starring George Clooney and "Captain Phillips" with Tom Hanks. They've also gotten the hint that mature moviegoers have a wide variety of interests and don't just want to see the chronicles of aging on screen.
