Synopsis

A runaway couple go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call ‘The Leisure Seeker’, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other. Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland star as the runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, Florida. They go together like matching furniture, their moods and habits perfectly shaped by each other’s. Even their ailments are complementary, one suffering in body and the other in mind: Mirren’s character, Ella, is facing cancer, while Sutherland’s, John, is losing his memory and his certainty about who he’s speaking to and what year it is. Along their road trip, the couple have a run in with the police, cross beautiful vistas, have a showdown with some thugs, and recapture their love for each other. Italy/France 2017 Paolo Virzì 102m
