Ella & John / The Leisure Seeker

by Paolo Virzì Retro: Donald Sutherland

Ella and John are suddenly gone. Instead of dealing with their future, the pair simply got in their old 70s RV one morning and drove off – far away from their doctors and their meddlesome, grown-up children, who, with great annoyance and worry at the sudden departure, begin the quest for their parents. Meanwhile, John, whose memory lapses are constantly increasing, and his pragmatic wife Ella, are well underway on an adventurous journey, the destination of which, only they know... Based on the novel by Michael Zadoorian, director Paolo Virzì delivers a heartwarming road-movie, carried by the chemistry between the great protagonists Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland.
