The men of three generations of a dysfunctional family take an unsentimental road trip across the south west of the United States, to fulfil the dying wish of the family patriarch.
One of those films that seems like it was made mainly for film festivals - and it has the awards to show for it - this assured debut from writer-director Jordan Roberts is a whimsical, offbeat tale of redemption, in which the men from three generations of a dysfunctional family take an unsentimental road trip across the South-western United States to fulfil the dying wishes of the family patriarch. If you can handle Michael Caine (aged 72) as the father of Christopher Walken (62), Glenne Headly as a pigtailed Danish housekeeper and the ever-present KFC product placement, there's much to enjoy - notably Walken's performance as a man who's taken too many wrong turns in life to ever find his way home. His Weapon Of Choice-style dance around the campfire is worth seeing, too.
If you can forgive a the odd stretch of plausibility (especially in the age difference of the actors), there's much to enjoy - noteably Walken's performance.
