Quotes

Ann Richards: We are taught to learn the names of the kings and queens of England, the Presidents of the United States, the dates of which events happened. But this person
[her hands folded and are close to her chest, uses her thumbs to gently point to herself]
Ann Richards: this core of who you are and what your value system is, is always going to be there no matter what. I don't think that we're train very often to think about that.

A modern "Wizard of Oz" that will encourage your journey through life!
31 January 2002 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

On a routine visit to the movies one weekend, I noticed an old Volkswagen van, a retriever, and 3 people behind a desk advertising a movie called "The Journey." The same weekend I decided to revisit the movies and check out what the van and dog was for. Amazingly it was an independent movie that AMC was allowing to be shown at their theater. I had to go because as much as I love indie films and as mad as I am towards Atlanta not having enough indie films come out of the wonderful city. I was amazed!

Atlantan Eric Saperston directs this amazing journey about a group of young Americans who decide to ask the age old question in life, "what do our elders have to pass down to us?" The result is a road trip movie that deserves a standing ovation. Along the way he talks to former FBI Director Bill Sessions, former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, U.S. Sen. Max Cleland, and celebrities Henry Winkler, Billy Crystal, Indigo Girls, and many more. He also picks up Dave Murcott, Paige O'Brien and Kathleen Kelly who also question their life's journey and saddle up for the dream of a lifetime.

It's definitely a movie that young and old will enjoy equally and will make you laugh, cry, and rethink your search of success. The cast was absolutely down to earth people that have no idea where life is going to take them next. They are still trying to get this bought and released theatrically. I definitely recommend it when its available.

I pray Saperston and crew find their places in life and if they ever make a new film (hint: please do) I will love to see it. Remember this quote in life: "Sometimes you take a trip. Sometimes the trip takes you."
