No one will see it, and it won't get much of a discussion here, but I'll post it anyway--mainly because I liked it so much (and I'm pretty hard to please these days).



This should be some eye-rolling, Hallmark-huggie, wouldn't-watch-it-on-a-dare, piece of shit, but it completely won me over from the start.  Great cast (Shia LeBeouf, Bruce Dern, Dakota Johnson, Thomas Hayden Church (I love that guy), beautifully performed.  It hits most of the road trip beats, I suppose, but there wasn't a false note anywhere.  It's little films like this (and Leave No Trace from last year) that keep me hunting for these quiet little gems.

if i ever see this movie the situation will be random. honey boy on the other hand

Mmm, an interesting theory, but perhaps more of a projection in this case.  Based on what I've heard about Honey Boy, tho, this would be way more soothing, yes.

come for hugs but itís clearly not a projection if it applies to the context in which it was stated

it's true that it's not worth seeking out, but if you watch it randomly someday you'll probably enjoy it for what it is. I hadn't seen this thread and watched it because you kept recommending it to wilberfan all day. that's random too
