Storyline

Alma can't stand to have one more birthday without seeing her estranged daughter, Elizabeth, who lives in Sydney, Australia. But Alma doesn't fit into her daughter's political-hostess life even for a visit, and she finds more sympathy in her granddaughter. Alma, in a burst of rebellion, buys a supercharged hotrod and sets out on a voyage of self-discovery to Melbourne--if she can remember to stay on the left side of the road. Along the way, she meets con artists, gangsters, and a ponytailed white-knight in a camper and she finds not only adventure and romance, but also the courage to go back and face her relationship with her daughter and set it right.

Middle-age woman does an Australian road-trip
19 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

-My Mom thoroughly enjoyed this movie, so much so that it is one she wanted for her personal library.

-Similiar to another individual's comment which I read, at first you tend to dislike all the characters, however if you can get through the first 5-10 minutes you will fall in love and respect the lead character.

-Once this happens you cannot but help yourself to continue on with her on her adventure.

-Obscure film, although lead character is famous U.S. actress which is probably the reason we were interested in watching it.

-Because it is a film my Mom enjoyed so much I would definitely watch it with her again. It would be one of those movies in her collection that we would just up and watch every now and then.

-There are a couple of friends that I would recommend this movie to as I know they would find it interesting and enjoyable.

-I have always had a wish to visit Austrailia and in a way my Mom and I did together.
