Directed: Paolo Virzi.

Starring: Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren.

Based on the best-selling novel by Michael Zadoorian, The Leisure Seeker is a pleasure giver. This wise and witty road movie, set in today’s divided United States, takes an entire country as its canvas, and a couple of aging adventurers as its lovable heroes. They go on an unforgettable journey, and recapture 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.
