david prown 120Every fall I get together with my grade school Connecticut pals and we take a 3/4 day road trip to some where in the United States. We are all in our mid 50's now and been friends forever.

I had a sense from the one preview I saw that this was a a buddy road trip sort of movie and it was though the gents were in their late 60's or early 70's. Essentially 2 ex brothers in-laws, one a recently retired doctor (Earl Lynn Nelson) and the other a down on his luck and his money widower (Paul Eenhoom). Both are likable and look familar (didn't research their filmography)

In short, they are cruising around Iceland, mainly in the barren but beautiful hinderlands trying to find their youth, their sense of adventure and plus solidify a long gone friendship.

Only 96 minutes long, this film moves along but to nowhere in particular. There is a good bit of advise they share, particularly the doctor, with younger folk they meet along the journey.

The travel all about this remote country in a huge, gas guzzling H2 Hummer, yet there is not a single mention of running low on gas, finding a gas station etc. Maybe I'm just being picky but I kept thinking this throughout the film.

Plenty of nice, funny, interpersonal banter throughout and I really enjoyed. Perfect film for The Showroom in Asbury Park. I do hope that we have their sense of adventure and youthful spirit at their age. The film had very little discussion, if any, on either others medical ailments which added to their youthful spirit.
