Helen Mirren received a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for her portrayal of Ella, a loving wife who takes her dementia-plagued husband John (Donald Sutherland) on the road trip of a lifetime in their 1975 camper van.
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.
