Storyline

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."

Heartwarming
26 December 1999 | by (Adelaide, South Australia) – See all my reviews

At last a movie that deals sensitively with the relationship between a widower (recent) and his children and why those children choose a course of action which does not always include the widower (Jack Lemmon). The fact that he chooses, on the spur of the moment, to go to California to see someone he has not seen for 50 years is testimony to the fact that he believes his life is being led by others and not himself. Part of the self realisation comes from a young woman who nearly runs him over and it is through her that he gradually realises that he is not old, he does not have to retire and that he has a purpose after all. A touching movie with nice warm overtones. If you are a child with an aged parent, it is a movie which one should see so that you do not make the same assumptions!
