The Leisure Seeker | 2018 | R | - 5.3.5

A retired couple (Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland) undertakes an adventure in their family Winnebago that takes them from Massachusetts to Key West, Florida. Along the way they face illness and misadventure and unpleasant events from their past are revealed. Also with Christian McKay, Janel Moloney, Dana Ivey and Dick Gregory. Directed by Paolo Virzì. [1:52]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A wife cleans her husband's legs and genital area (we do not see anything) from urine and they both react to an apparent erection; he climbs between her legs and thrusts briefly and says he does not want to climax, and then rolls over and they hold each other.
 Women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage in a few scenes. Several women wear off-the-shoulder gowns that reveal cleavage, upper chests, shoulders and backs. A woman in a photo has her top pulled up to reveal her pregnant, bare abdomen. A woman in a photo wears shorts that reveal her bare legs to the thighs. After a man urinates in his bed, his wife cleans his legs as he puts on a fresh pair of briefs (we see his bare legs).
 A man tells his adult sister that he found their father performing oral sex on their mother once. A man asks his wife where she is (recognizing her as someone else) and inadvertently confesses to infidelity. A man asks another man if he wears boxers or briefs.
 A husband kisses his wife on the forehead. A husband and his wife dance together. A husband and his wife sleep in bed together in several scenes (both are clothed).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - An RV blows a tire and stops on the side of a road; two men in a car stop to assist and pull knives on the man and the woman from the RV, one man hits the man from the RV in the face and the woman gets a shotgun and threatens the two attackers; one puts a knife to the man's throat but stops and the attackers drop their knives and run away.
 A man points a shotgun (not loaded) at his wife and orders her to take him to her ex-boyfriend; they go to senior home where the man pulls the shotgun out of his pant leg and threatens several men before finding the ex-boyfriend and they are escorted off the property by nurses and a guard. Men with guns re-enact a war scene at a re-enactment site.
 A woman hits her husband several times and when he leaves, she yells, "Come back here so I can kill you." A woman punches the picture of another woman and calls her names. A woman takes her husband to a senior care home and leaves him there (she returns for him later).
 A husband and his wife drink a sleeping draft (a sedative) and fall asleep in an idling RV as it fills with exhaust fumes until another man opens the door and clouds of the gas escape; we then see mourners gathered at a funeral. A truck veers on a highway and cuts off an RV that swerves to avoid it. A man drives away from a rest stop without his wife and she yells for him to stop; a man with a motorcycle offers to help her and they ride alongside the RV until he pulls over. A man swerves while driving on a highway and a police officer pulls him over. A man wanders away from his wife and she panics trying to find him (she does find him and he is OK).
 A woman trips and falls and complains of having hurt her back; her husband comes to help her and falls, hurting his arm and the woman drags herself to their RV and pulls herself up while the man falls asleep on the ground until the woman throws stones at him to wake him up. A woman winces in pain in several scenes. A woman is taken away on a stretcher to an ambulance and we see her later in a hospital with monitors.
 A man instructs his wife that when he gets sick enough, she should give him a shotgun and put his finger on the trigger (implying suicide). A man yells at his wife and accuses her of thinking about and being in contact with her ex-boyfriend (from many years ago). A woman yells at her husband, who's suffering from dementia, several times about not remembering things. A man yells at and curses at his mother over the phone. A man panics when he realizes that his parents have left home and taken their RV. A woman asks, "What if she lost her marbles?" about her mother. A man yells at his wife, "I want a cup of tea." Doctors tell a man that his wife's cancer has spread and that they are surprised that she is still getting around with its severity. A man asks a woman, "Where's my gun?" A woman asks her husband (he's suffering from dementia) several times, "What goes on in that head of yours?" A man asks his wife where she is (recognizing her as someone else) and inadvertently confesses to infidelity. We see people at a Donald J. Trump rally and hear people chanting, "No more Muslims," and "Ban them all." A woman tells her adult daughter, "I got rid of your father."
 A man gets up from bed and we see that the bed is wet with urine and his wife uses a cloth to wipe his legs. A man urinates on himself while riding in a taxi and we see urine stained pants, socks and shoes. A man asks a woman if she flatulated and she denies it. A man burps while talking to a police officer after drinking soda. A woman vomits on the floor (we see spray and a stain on a carpet). A woman gags, covers her mouth and collapses (we do not see her vomit).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
