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 »

Film Noir meets Road Trip........
27 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

A father is taking his 3 kids across America to start a new job and in their new home.

But is the family in crisis and where is Mum?

This is a splendid "growing up" movie.

High class script, super realistic acting and some real emotional drama played out in a subtle but powerful way.

Had me engrossed throughout.

Thank you Sundance for this picture.

Excellent movie, deserving top marks!

9/10
