Leisure Seeker, The (15)

Drama, Comedy

A US comedy drama in which an elderly couple go on a road trip to the Florida Keys.

The critical consensus

Mirren and a dignified Sutherland remain fully committed to the characters and it is the affection we retain for them that makes this modest effort mildly endearing.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 16/04/2018

Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland play lovable oldsters on a road trip, with soppy, insufferable results.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/04/2018

Sentimentality and morbidity sit side by side. Thankfully, Mirren and Sutherland bring enough mischief, humour and passion to their roles to ensure that the film’s more toe-curling moments are quickly forgotten.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 18/04/2018

Continues a trend of serving up dumbed-down movies for seniors, as if IQ points suddenly drop post-retirement.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/04/2018

A funny and truthful look at growing old together.

***(*)(*)Eve Jones, Little White Lies, 20/04/2018

A bumpy trip in places but a poignant one.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 20/04/2018

Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland do their best with this turgid terminal-illness road movie.
