This is from the back of the DVD package. "After the death of his wife, depressed Tom Gerrin (Jack Lemmon) meets Leane Bossert (Sarah Paulson), a 21-year-old free spirit, and the unlikely pair hitchhike across the country. In learning to respect each other's differences, they become the best of mismatched friends and give each other the courage to embrace new beginnings and face the sad finales that greet them at their journey's end."

The two leads really are a standout!
7 August 2006 | by (CGSM,Soseaua Nationala 49) – See all my reviews

Harmonious,well-balanced,serene,golden,dignified movie.Everything is of interest:the script (by an objective,sober psychologist),the dialogs ,the cast (Lemmon and Miss Paulson,Mrs. Griffith),the photography; visually,the film is delightful.The acting is strong (Lemmon,electrifying,simply outstanding;Miss Paulson,amazing!),the funny dialog works,the humor is unobtrusive and light.Nothing hollow, ostentatious or cheap here.

The Long Way Home is nothing less than it is meant to be,or than it intended to be.It leaves a suave taste,and a pleasing fragrance.Real cinema took place here!

The script wisely turns down many stupid possible solutions and chooses to be supple.(Another writer would have chosen some kitsch twists.)

Lemmon seems to be believable in any kind of role.

It is useless and pointless to begin enumerating what this movie IS NOT (as the disappointed love has made some to proceed).It is not a lot of things;but that does not matter.Take it,or leave it.Enjoy it as it is.That's all we got,and it is not few.
