Goofs

The date of the Denver newspaper Ellie glances at is October 27, 1962. Assuming their departure date was October 22 (as shown on screen), it took them five days to drive roughly 1300 miles, which is only about 260 miles per day. Assuming they're on the road an average of 8 hours per day, that's less than 35 miles per hour. If they were concerned about getting away far enough before their absence was noted, they sure weren't driving like it. See more »

Like a Hallmark story - only better
3 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very nice and simple 'road movie' of two early teen girls driving from California to New York state to meet Eleanor Roosevelt. One girl is making the trip to appease her guilt feelings and the other is a best friend going along in support of the others mission.

Along the road a spectrum of odd characters are met and two have reason to join the girls in their cross country adventure. I do not want to give any details about the story as it is the story that gives this film it's charm. Anyone who enjoys road movies and wants a clear simple and nice story then this flick is the right choice. It's not great acting nor is the script first class writing but as a whole it works well and is entertaining!

Does it have a happy ending - no - and - yes! Watch this film to find out why.
