On The Road Looking for a Country Called Home!
19 April 2018 | by SylSee all my reviews

If Mary McCormack wasn't in the film, I probably would have left it at the library sale. I actually enjoyed the performances by the entire cast. Imogen Poots played Ellie Edwards, a Los Angeles aspiring furniture designer, who gets the dreaded phone call about her estranged father in Texas. He died as she trying to get there. She meets her grandparents for the first time. June Squibb did a great job playing Grandma. Mary McCormack's performance as Amanda is quite credible and believable. Mackenzie Davis' performance as Reno is quite a surprise too. The film handled the friendship between Ellie and Reno with class and restraint. The film was shot on location in Los Angeles and in Texas. The memorial service is unforgettable. Ellie spends the film trying to connect with complete strangers. She also tries to deal with the painful loss of her father.
