When they drive through Times Square in the first week of November 1962 they pass the Criterion Theater with a marquee advertising "Lawrence of Arabia." That film's U.S. premiere was indeed at the Criterion, but not until mid-December 1962. See more »
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.
