The Leisure Seeker (15)

The Leisure Seeker (15)

The Leisure Seeker (15)


Ella Spencer (Helen Mirren) and her husband John (Donald Sutherland) are well into their golden years, and it’s beginning to dawn on Ella that there are many things they still haven’t done – and perhaps not a lot of time to do them.

With dementia slowly taking over John’s life, she decides that it’s now or never. In the early hours of the morning, they sneak into The Leisure Seeker – their 1975 Winnebago camper van – and hit the road before their well-meaning (but controlling) adult children can stop them.

Ella wants to take John, a retired professor, to the Key West house his literary hero Ernest Hemingway lived in. As they travel down Route 1, from Massachusetts to Florida, they find themselves in a series of hilarious, hampering, and heart-breaking situations.
