A ONCE IN A LIFETIME ROADTRIP THEY WILL NEVER FORGET.
A senior Massachusetts couple (Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland) take their Winnebago on one last trip to the Florida Keys; he suffers from Alzheimer’s, she has cancer. We spend some time together with people who have precious little left of it on Earth; their adult children are worried, but they are determined to enjoy this last vacation. Good and bad memories haunt them, some of their experiences on the road are absurd, but their love endures. The film really doesn’t have much to say, but the two stars almost make us forget that.
