“This hilarious, family-friendly comedy is both a toast to the parents from the greatest generation, and a gentle roast of their dedication to the family road trip. Don Browning returns home and decides to honor his father’s last wish: taking his ashes to his childhood home. But upon discovering Grandma’s house is now a grocery store, he embarks on a journey in search of the perfect resting place. Driving along familiar roads, the story shifts along Don’s timeline as he recollects the annual, sometimes torturous vacations of his youth. These memories, along with his current existential crisis, help him reconcile his past and present at a perfect final destination.”
||2 and 7 p.m.
