Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren (Best Actress, The Queen, 1993) and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland (Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film: Citizen X, 1995; Path to War, 2002) star in the adventurous drama The Leisure Seeker. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Michael Zadoorian, Italian director Paolo Virzì’s (Like Crazy) first English language film tells the story of John (Sutherland) and Ella Spencer (Mirren) as they embark on one last road trip from Boston to the Hemingway House in the Florida Keys in their trusty recreational vehicle. The Leisure Seeker also stars Christian McKay (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Janel Moloney (“The West Wing”).
Back when John and Ella Spencer (Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren) were young, the ’75 Winnebago Indian they christened “The Leisure Seeker” was a beloved family getaway. Now, the Leisure Seeker has become their actual getaway vehicle, an escape from their well-intentioned but overbearing middle-aged children. Faced with more caregiving than they care to accept, John and Ella resolve to enjoy the freedom of one last RV road trip on their own.
