Storyline

Rey gave up his chance at college and love to raise his young half-brother Oliver, who looks nothing like him - "same mom, different dads." But when his meth addicted mother, Lola, is released from prison determined to rebuild her family, Rey kidnaps his younger brother and escapes their desert home for the California coast, chasing the dream that he let go years ago. Lola turns to her ex-husband Bo to help find her missing boys, bringing up ghosts from their own failed relationship. With nothing but the open road ahead of them, and Lola and Bo in close pursuit, Rey and Oliver race away from a past they never wanted, towards a future that could have been. Written by Chris B.

What a bore
27 July 2017 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This movie is boring and uninteresting. A drug addicted abusive mom is about to be released from prison. As if the courts would give her custody. So the elder brother (Taylor Lautner) wants to take his younger brother away and they run off to the beach.

Taylor Lautner tries to stretch his acting range here by doing a serious role. But his delivery of lines is monotonous and sounds like he is reading a script. Giving him a bit of scruff doesn't make him a serious actor. He is better for comedy and action.

In the end it felt like a big fuss about nothing.
