The Leisure Seeker
CAST: Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland, Kirsty Mitchell, Joshua Mikel, Christian McKay DIRECTOR: Paolo Virzi CAPTIONED ON WEDNESDAYS | ENDS 5/17
The film stars Academy Award-winner (R) Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner (R) Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, travelling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West. They 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.
Not too much happens for most of The Leisure Seeker. But it is one of those films where you don't mind its tranquility and leisurely pace. Watching Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren being so smitten and in love with each other is just so delightful.Gregory Wakeman, Metro
The great Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland on a journey of tears and laughter.Irene Crespo, Cinemania
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).David Sexton, London Evening Standard
