The great American road movie is renewed and refreshed in The Leisure Seeker, directed with Italian cinematic flair by Paolo Virzì, winner of the 2017 David di Donatello Best Director Award (Italy’s equivalent of the Oscar) for his Best Picture winner Like Crazy. The dramatic comedy is a rich character study, vividly brought to life by extraordinary actors Helen Mirren (The Queen, Woman in Gold, Red, Gosford Park) and Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games, MASH, Ordinary People, Don’t Look Now), playing a long-married loving couple confronting the vicissitudes of old age. Escaping their well-meaning but controlling children, Ella and John embark on an unforgettable last journey in the faithful old Winnebago RV they call The Leisure Seeker. The runaway couple travels from Boston to the Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.
