Helen Mirren & Donald Sutherland hit the road in The Leisure Seeker trailer

Based upon the novel of the same name by Michael Zadoorian, THE LEISURE SEEKER stars Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple seeking to escape from their overbearing children and doctors by going on an unforgettable cross-country journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker. Ella (Mirren) is dying of cancer while John (Sutherland) is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and neither are interested in quietly fading away surrounded by nurses and machines. While traveling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, they recapture their passion for life as well as their love for each other as Ella tries to remind John of the type of man he used to be.

A synopsis of "The Leisure Seeker" via Amazon:

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.

THE LEISURE SEEKER will hit theaters on January 19, 2018.
