Funny, heartwarming, enjoyable

My wife and I saw a screening of this film and it is a really wonderful movie. We were laughing out loud at many of the scenes along with the rest of the audience. It's not really about farming, but is a touching story of life transitions and the relationship between an elderly farmer and his 23-year old grand daughter as they go on an epic road trip. A "coming of age" movie at both ends of the spectrum. Lots of generational humor. It reminded me a bit of Grumpy Old Men. Although there are sad moments, I found the film overall to be uplifting and inspirational.
