Goofs

After they arrive in Colorado, Max talks about her Aunt Daisy living in Las Vegas, Nevada and Ellie corrects her that it's actually Las Vegas, New Mexico. Since they drove through Zion National Park, they must have gone through Las Vegas, Nevada first. That would have been the time for Max to be confused. Not one or two days and 700+ miles later.

Like a Hallmark story - only better
3 August 2016 | by cekadahSee 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.
