Movie Info

Pensive New York City architect Cal (Billy Crudup) spontaneously abandons his wife and child and sets off in search of what he hopes will be a better life. During a freewheeling road trip across the U.S., Cal meets a string of strangers who find him alternately charming and destructive -- including friendly contractor Carl (Cleavant Derricks) and fellow wanderer Dulcie (Julianne Moore). He also has a distressing meeting with an old friend who questions his morality.

Audience Reviews for World Traveler

  • Sep 24, 2006
    A moving story about lost fathers and lost sons. Billy Crudup always picks his roles with care, often looking to play unique characters who are searching for something, are damaged somehow, and are in need of healing. Julianne Moore plays well the wandering mother, traveling to connect with her son at a train station somehere out there in space and time. Willie Nelson provides the bulk of a memorable soundtrack. A must-see for Crudup fans, and an interesting part for David Keith, whom I'd like to see back doing more films.
