Jennifer Aniston to play Harvard Professor.

Jennifer Aniston is to play Harvard Professor Ellen Langer in an up and coming movie called 'Counter Clockwise'

 Langer is famous for her research into the health and well-being of older people.  Most famously, she convinced a group of elderly men that the year was actually 1959. She re-created this time period down to the last details; music, clothing, newspapers and foods from that year.  Langer encouraged the men to visualise and talk as if they were back living in the 50's.  What she found was that these men showed physical and psychological improvements.  This research is now being brought to life on the big screen.  To read the story click here
