Storyline

The oddest couple takes an unforgettable journey through the American Southwest, finding happiness in the unlikeliest of places and seeing in each other what no one else has seen before. Maya is a product of childhood abuse who escapes her shattered life in Los Angeles and meets Duncan, a hermit from a tiny town. He is socially awkward and a slave to pattern and routine, but a master of map-making and directions. Their journey teaches Maya to care for someone else and takes Duncan into a new world. Their road trip is filled with unexpected surprises and hard realities that redefine the notion of family. Written by Anonymous

The Odd Way Home is a film that tells the gripping story of a young woman dealing with her lot in life often having made bad decisions along her path. It touches on something that almost every young adult and adult can relate to; this one included. It was beautifully written and expertly executed.

I was blown away by the depth of the characters and particularly by Willis and Marquette's portrayals of them. Honestly, who has been keeping these actors under lock and key? They were so honest and real that I felt I was sitting in on the scenes with them. Which, by the way, speaks to the beautiful cinematography that the film maintains throughout.

This film is gut wrenching and heartwarming. It made me laugh. It made me cry. It gave me hope, took it away, and gave it back again. It's a film about life and making one's way through it the best way that they can.

I highly recommend this film and plan to add it to the shelves of my personal library. Yes, I still have movies on DVD on my shelves.
