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

Very beautiful film.
30 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very moving, and lovely film. The writing was unique, clever, and sharp. The acting seemed effortless, and was extremely spot-on. Maya was a very sharp, natural, and empathetic character played by Rumer Willis. Her voice/music was also very nice (might I add). Chris Marquette just could not have done better with his very intricate/lovable character. One of my favorite performances was portrayed by Veronica Cartwright towards the very end of the film. Just truly great all around. I would highly suggest this film. All the performances were at the level they should have been. No one over did it or under-did it. If that works as a sentence. And that is my review of this film.
