Movie: The Leisure Seeker

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

This movie is not receiving great reviews, in spite of its star performers. It is funny, great one-liners exchanged between the aging still-in-love couple. We see the truly total dedication required in care-giving with someone going through ever-deepening memory loss. In discussing the film with reviewers, the actors point out that respect for the person, the whole person, can be difficult to keep uppermost in everyday life. I liked the way Helen’s character kept working at this for her husband. Their relationship appeared genuine – happy at times, persistent in showing their love for each other, and trying at times, while they struggled to cope.
