Bernadette refers to Dr. Kurtz, the Judy Greer character, as "Colonel Kurtz" at one point. Colonel Kurtz was the enigmatic figure in the film "Apocalyse Now" in which Laurence Fishburne, who plays Bernadette's former colleague Paul Jellinek, had a part as Tyrone 'Clean' Miller, the youngest member on the boat.

In depth look at life and being up and down and wanting and doing an escape!
Director Richard Linklater is one that does movies in an in depth manner as they are long drawn out and almost always deal with life and personal matters. And most viewers as they watch can relate to them and most face some in real life. This latest "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" is one that deals with somewhat of a midlife drama as the head character wants a change and escape to a new scene all while wanting to live past glory again.
Bernadette Fox(Cate Blanchett) is a professional woman an inventor, teacher, wife, and mom who had a very creative past only now her life is stuck in neutral. It's like she can't get no satisfaction! So she needs a new journey a new adventure and discovery. So upon taking a getaway in somewhat of a secretive manner the world opens back up and a new light shines for her! Overall really a picture of once again finding self discovery and old glory thru escape, not one of Richard's best works and the performance from Cate is only okay, still it's a watch for some drama and inspiration.
