Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

I'm not sure you need to get it

As long as I've been watching movies, the "road movie" has been a genre. And these are not generally plot driven. Most often, they have young protagonists who hit the road, meet people, have some adventures, learn some life lessons. And that's it. If you like the people, the scenery, if you like their little journey, you enjoy the movie. Otherwise you don't.

I would say this is firmly in that tradition, although the people are older. If there is a theme, it is loss, loss of family through aging and death, loss of community through economic change, loss of home.

And she hits the road and she meets a bunch of people whom I found interesting, and she sees some scenery which I found quite lovely.

I enjoyed this quite a bit and would be quite happy to see such a small and quiet story win best picture. And I more or less choked on Promising Young Woman. So to each their own.
