Be Sure to Discover "The Discoverers"
25 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

No, this movie is not for everyone. This is one of those little quirky films I like, that you never quite know where it's heading, but just sorta enjoy the journey along the way.

In this case, it's the same trek/journey that Lewis & Clark took to find the Northwest Passage. Griffin Dunne stars as the head of a family spiraling out of control, and after the passing of his mother, joins his father and a team of L&C reenactors with his son and daughter. In many ways, it's Madeleine Martin ("Californication") as the daughter that steals the show. She's clever, smart and always one step ahead of everyone else it seems. The funniest moments in this are little things you never quite expect- I've found that to be more my taste. So if you're into little cerebral comedies like this, "The Discoverers" will be right up your alley...
