Storyline

As children, British actor Paul Blackthorne and Australian photographer Mister Basquali both fell in love with America. Later they each fulfilled their dream to live here, but after two wars, a near economic collapse, and uncertainty about the country's direction, these two expats began to have doubts -- was America still the great place they once dreamed of? They drive across America to find out, interviewing random people about issues that affect and confront us all. From the ghetto to the gun show, the courthouse to the cattle yard, they are touched by the wisdom and insight of the people they meet. This American Journey is a cinematic postcard from the people to the people, teaching us that hearts can be healed at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places.

I am not a documentary person. If you've never watched a documentary, this is a good one to start with. Everyone will find something in it they can relate to given the range of people and views. It avoids being overly preachy, sappy or angry while engaging in conversations touching on the economy, religion, politics, and solutions for the future from everyday people. It is must-see for anyone who is discouraged by the dumbing down and polarization of Americans through sound-bites and political generalizations. You will laugh and smile and think. You might even find some people who think like you do. Having spent numerous childhood vacations packed in a station wagon with up to six siblings, a car top carrier full of camping gear for 4,000+ mile trips to visit family (our version of an American Journey) I can honestly say I would drive across the country to buy these gentlemen a cup of coffee and talk about the world. And I will definitely watch this again.
