An American surrogate ( holly hunter) has female twin daughters in Holland for two male partners and has no contact with them and no family except them when she breaks her leg and needs support to get well. The twins now in their late 20s fly to America from Europe to meet her when shes released from the hospital. Hollys only possession is an old run down RV and the three set off in the RV on their mutual adventure!Written by
The actresses that play twins in the movie are sisters in real life. But Carice is in fact two years older than Jelka Van Houten. See more »
A road movie about finding a mother
This is a magnificent movie. It contains feel-good, ups and downs, laughter and tears, violence and kindness, love and lust. A lot of contradictions. The movie is a mirror of real life, like road movies should be. All actors are casted great. The scenery is philosophical and well chosen for the story. Especially the end is magical. Not in a fairy-tale way but in a way people should think about what fairy-tales are. The singing is beautiful, the acting is true, the girls are lovely, the mother too. I enjoyed every minute, every frame. The story takes you along and stays with you for a very long time. It's an intense experience. Without spoiling it for future watchers: this is what life is all about. A philosophical approach of family and of love... The fabulous end is the answer to all questions.
