The Leisure Seeker

Cinema

Directed by Paolo Virzì | 2017 | Italy, France | Starring Donald Sutherland, Helen Mirren, Christian McKay | 112mins | Certificate 15

Helen Mirren received a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for her portrayal of a loving wife who takes her husband (Donald Sutherland), who has dementia, on the road trip of a lifetime.

Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland star as a runaway couple going on an unforgettable cross-country journey in their vintage camper. Ella and John are fleeing the suffocating care of their doctors and grown children. He is distracted but strong; she is frail but sharp. Their journey aboard the faithful old camper they call The Leisure Seeker takes them from Boston to Key West.

Sharing moments of exhilaration and anguish, they recapture their passion for life and their love for one another on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end. The film is inspired by the novel of the same name by Michael Zadoorian.

“It’s hard to imagine other performers bringing so much to this story. They give a true impression of two people who have spent their lives together and know how to talk each other” - Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
