Review: The Leisure Seeker

Why so subtle? It was murder.

This starts out as an interesting film with some good acting by the two main stars - Donald and Helen. Most believable. I think it was a bucket list ride with an out clause. It portrayed the dementia process well except for Donald driving. Never really explained despite his frequent memory loss how he was able to remember to drive. There was some poignant moments in the movie - finding out about previous believed affairs and actual affairs, and the scarey grandad dumping in a nursing home. However the theme towards the end was played as suicide and euthanasia. However we were never lead to believes Donald's character wanted to die. He just didnt want to be alone. So for me this was a film about murder suicide - and so lost some of its charm.
