Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland are a runaway couple who, despite each having serious health problems and medical conditions, go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, traveling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West.
They recapture their passion for life and their love for each other on their road trip that provides revelation and surprise all the way. The main reason to see this may be the same reason Mirren chose to make it: her character, she has said, “is not someone withdrawing from life. This is someone rushing headlong into life.” So she rushed headlong into a memorable performance. It’s worth taking the trip.
