Critic Reviews for The Leisure Seeker
The movie is only willing to serve up its truths halfway. And I still teared up.
Not even two actors as talented as Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland can save this dreadfully predictable Alzheimer's road movie.
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 feels like there is the potential here for a really congenial piece of cinema, and yet it just persists in letting you down.
False sentimentality can be a danger. However, The Leisure Seeker is dry-eyed even at its most moving and a celebration of love even as it reaches its end.
Their picaresque journey, punctuated by campside evenings spent looking through slides of their past life, is going only one way - but these are outstanding performances, embracing age, by Sutherland and Mirren (despite a dodgy accent).
