Read the novel instead, this is a terrible adaption
2 October 2017 | by (Citizen of the world) – See all my reviews

Look we are not all readers, I get that. But Zadoorian's novels and short stories are so tied to Detroit it is really a shame to alter both the beginning and end of the trip. In the novel it is from Detroit to Disneyland, and the element of kitsch and widening spaces is a important part of the story just not conveyed by transferring it from Wellesley Mass to Hemingway's place in the Keys. The author and subject matter center on memory and Detroit is such a fitting metaphor of lost earlier times, that a stable academic town like Wellesley simply does not convey ads a starting point.

Sutherland and Mirren are certainly competent but their roles but neither delivers anything remarkable in their roles here.

The most interesting treatment of memory in the novel is substituted with endless sentimentality that frankly is so hamhanded that hard to take after 15 minutes.

I just cannot recommend this film.
