Director: Paolo Virzì (Like Crazy, Human Capital)

John (Donald Sutherland) and Ella Spencer (Helen Mirren) have almost reached the end of the road. Instead of quietly fading away, however, the Boston seventy-somethings flee the suffocating care of their doctors and children and hop aboard their vintage campervan, The Leisure Seeker, to visit the Florida Keys house of John’s hero, Ernest Hemingway.

Screen veterans Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland star in a poignant and triumphant tale of a couple determined to celebrate their life, and love for each other, in one last grand adventure.
