Directed by Paolo Virzì, winner of the 2017 David di Donatello Best Director Award, The Leisure Seeker stars Academy Award-winner® Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe- winner® Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple on an journey in the faithful old RV they call the Leisure Seeker. The couple travels from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.


Wonderful performances from Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren help to lift a depressing subject, Sutherland has sever Alzheimer’s, into an enjoyable, if you can call it that, couple of hours viewing.

Mirren is particularly good as the supportive wife who has to go through periods of her husband failing to recognise her as his disease progresses.

The Leisure Seeker is essentially a road movie and might not be to everyone’s taste, but as a window looking into the lives of Alzheimer’s suffers and how the disease impacts on the victim’s family and friends The Leisure Seeker is a compelling if somewhat depressing piece of movie making.
