Storyline

Straight-laced, type-A personality Joy Miles has to take an unscheduled road trip to drive her forgetful, yet opinionated, mother-in-law, Loraine, from Louisville, Kentucky to Savannah, Georgia. Although initially impatient and frustrated, Joy begins to realize her true affection for Loraine as she takes a front-seat-view of how this strong-willed yet free-spirited woman manages the emotional transition of learning to live life after losing her spouse. Despite their many differences, and with light-hearted adventures at every turn, they discover how much they respect and even need each other.

Trivia

Error- After getting pulled over in Jellico,TN on the KY/TN border on I75, they pass an interstate sign in Knoxville that shows the split for I640W/I40W-I75N (to Lexington). They should currently be on I75S, having left Lexington 3+ hours back, so this is not a sign they would pass. See more »

Wholesome, clean, family movie ...
29 August 2018 | by wills-fam-12See all my reviews

I had hoped, as the description indicates, this would be a moving family film with an inspiring message central to a family road trip (e.g. exploring the mother-daughter dynamic)...and it did!

Though it fell light on content, I did "feel" something--anger, humor, relief.

What pleased me most was that a captivating film was made devoid of sexual encounters, obscene language and offensive gimmicks to lure viewers. An enjoyable movie can be made without those features! Bravo!
