“The Leisure Seeker: A Novel”
By: Michael Zadoorian
Genre: Humor & Satire/Alzheimer’s Disease
Release Date: October 6, 2009
The unforgettable cross-country journey of a runaway couple in their twilight years determined to meet the end of all roads on their own terms—a major motion picture from Sony Pictures Classics starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland.
The Robinas have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now in their eighties, Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer’s. Yearning for one last adventure, the self-proclaimed “down-on-their-luck geezers” kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery.
With Ella as his vigilant copilot, John steers their ’78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they’re having a damned hard time remembering. Yet Ella is determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds—even when everyone says you can’t.
Soon to be a major motion picture from Sony Pictures Classics starring Oscar award-winners Helen Mirren* and Donald Sutherland, coming to New York and Los Angeles on January 19th, 2018, opening nationwide on March 2nd, 2018.
I don’t usually mix movies and books in the same post, but the movie trailer for The Leisure Seeker is just too cute! Watch the trailer… and go see the movie in March—but read the book first! 😀
