The Leisure Seeker, a road movie short on comedy and drama should at least offer a keen level of observation, but here insight is scarce and emotional resonance is faint. Ella and John happily hit the road, spending nights and stopping at diners at camper sites. Where they project old family slides onto a screen and welcome other RV owners who’ve clearly got nothing more entertaining, than view a couple of strangers. John’s lucidity is unpredictable and Ella is emotionally weary from watching her adored husband lose his memory.
A couple who runaway embarks on a cross-country journey from Boston to the Florida Keys in their vintage camper to escape from the suffocating care of their doctors and grown children. It’s hard to miss the rising tide of films made for and about baby boomers crossing the 70-year threshold. But unless the bar is raised pretty soon, the genre’s limited thematic and stylistic range is likely to run it into the ground.
