critics consensus

Despite some beautiful scenery, Tennessee can't extend its simple premise beyond typical independent road trip movie tropes. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Years after escaping the clutches of his alcoholic father, cabdriver Carter (Adam Rothenberg) hears that Ellis (Ethan Peck), the brother he has raised as a son, has leukemia. In desperate need of a suitable bone-marrow donor, Carter and Ellis set off on a solemn drive from New Mexico to Knoxville, Tenn., in hopes of finding their errant father. Along the way, the two befriend truck-stop waitress Krystal (Mariah Carey), who joins them on the road -- with her own dark past in hot pursuit.

    This was a really good movie, despite that fact that Mariah Carey was in it. She isnt the best actress by any account, BUT the movie around her more than made up for it. The main cast was really talented, and they had me mesmerized. This was a very moving, touching slow paced drama...right up my alley on a dark and dreary morning.

    Dreary and glum with a flicker of hope at the end.

    "I'm always up for a road-trip movie. This one just wasn't the best that I have seen. I was a little iffy going into just because the movie has the singer Mariah Carey playing one of the lead roles. Of course she's some type of singer in the film. That's not predictable at all. But she wasn't the worse part about the film. She actually did a pretty decent job in the movie. The problem with the film was... I just can't put my finger on it. Maybe it was the slowness or the lack of anything really happening that had me finding this film to be just meh. I did however enjoy moments of the movie. I think the relationship between the two brothers was what I enjoyed the most. The way Carter gave everything up for Ellis was heroic. Plus their story is a sad and tragic story. It wasn't easy watching some of the flash-back scenes of their father being abusive. So in all, not a bad film, but nothing too great happening in it either. Acting was solid but that is as about as good as it gets with this movie."
