The Leisure Seeker (2018)

By Livia Peterson

Ella and John Spencer (Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland) enjoy the final road trip to the Hemingway House in the Florida Keys prior to her cancer and his memory loss (Alzheimer's disease), respectively are able to defeat them. The duo enjoy the trip in the family recreational vehicle, dubbed the Leisure Seeker and remember the memories of the lifetime and reignite the romance.

Despite The Leisure Seeker follows the predictable road trip narrative, it sheds some light, regarding the terminal illnesses and respecting the elderly. From the brilliant performances to the gut punching conclusion, the film mostly provides believable circumstances. Carpe diem. B+
