Goofs

Tom's short fuse is set off again when he is going to be charged $49 for the entrance fee to the Grand Canyon National Park ($25 for the vehicle plus $12 for each for 2 "adults".) The fee would actually have been only $25, as per the Park's website fee schedule: "Grand Canyon National Park Vehicle Permit- $25.00 (U.S. Dollars) Admits one single, private, non-commercial vehicle and all its passengers." The entrance fee for "Individuals" entering without a vehicle (walking, bike, etc.,) is $12 each. See more »

A quiet and moving coming of age film - excellent.
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As always, John Hawkes is impressive as the tense, complex patriarch in this story of a broken family's road trip from New England to their new life in California. However it's Ryan Simpkin's film, and we see the film through her character Greta's watchful and sensitive eyes. Ty Simpkins, Ryan's real life brother also gives a sweet, funny and touching performance as her brother in the film. The two actors have a great dynamic and I hope we get to see more of these two together in future films. I found this film to be quietly moving and subtly powerful. The director, Olivia Silver, has a light and sensitive touch, and she makes the viewer feel as though she's simply let the actors naturally play their stories out. I'll be keeping a watch out for more of her films to come.
