A runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, traveling from Boston to Key West. They recapture their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.
Film legend Donald Sutherland and three of his five children, Kiefer (born to actress Shirley Douglas), Roeg (born to actress Francine Racette) and Rossif (also born to Racette), joined The Hollywood Reporter to pose for the Hollywood Legacies issue and discuss their relationship to the entertainment industry.
Donald is best known for his iconic roles in Oscar-winning films such M*A*S*H and Ordinary People. Recently he gave a sinister performance in the blockbuster Hunger Games franchise, and stars in this year’s The Leisure Seeker alongside Helen Mirren.
An American road movie made by an Italian director with Canadian and British stars, “The Leisure Seeker” is a gentle but pointed lament for things that are lost and things that are fading, be they personal memories or a national sense of community. The film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, takes director Paolo Virzi down the east coast of the U.S., as stars Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren drive a battered 1975 Winnebago (which she’s dubbed “the Leisure Seeker”) from their home in Massachusetts to Ernest Hemingway’s house in the Florida Keys. It is in parts a light.
