The Leisure Seeker

 

Rated R · 112 minutes · 2018

Adventure, Comedy drama
This misguided road movie, the first English-language film from Italian director Paolo Virzi (Human Capital, Like Crazy), stars Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as an ailing, elderly Massachusetts couple who give their bossy middle-aged offspring the slip and head south in a vintage Winnebago for one last hurrah. The Alzheimer's-afflicted husband is a retired English lit teacher who remembers Ernest Hemingway but not his own kids' names, so his cancer-stricken wife maps a pilgrimage to the great author's landmark home in Key West. Finding any comedy in aggressive diseases requires a delicacy of tone absent from this plodding adaptation of Michael Zadoorian's novel. With Christian McKay and Janel Moloney.
