Very depressing for "old" people, but very good acting!
This movie is a tender hearted road trip revealing the frailties of aging in the context of a long devoted marriage.
Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland can do anything – except, perhaps, save this sentimental drool bucket of senior cinema.
A road movie short on comedy and drama should at least offer a keen level of observation, but here insight is scarce and emotional resonance is faint.
It’s a long, long road cluttered with clichés and stalled in softness, pot-holed by its self-serving use of Alzheimer’s as a narrative convenience.

Did You Know?
- Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren previously appeared in Bethune: The Making of a Hero (1990).
- Early in the film, just before John veers into the next lane to avoid a collision, Ella's purse and other items are clearly visible on the ledge above the dashboard. As he strives to correct his steering, it looks like something may have flown out the open window. The purse no longer appears in the next and subsequent frames (leading this viewer to believe that the lost bag would be an essential plot device). However, the purse is clearly in Ella's possession when they make their next stop.
- Ella Spencer: It's just something I really need to do with your father.
