Great family sort of film. Initially his life is ruined due to a massive business failure, not clear how you lose a billion dollars on shoes but he managed it and he was going to end it all. The film is his journey to the family home town in rural USA to arrange his fathers funeral. The family and community change his perspective and then he goes on a pre arranged journey around various key places in the USA and eventually with a happy ending. It is an American film after all so it has to have a happy ending. Some humour and a generally happy film although he is unsure how to deal with the myth he is a successful businessmen when it is about to break in the national media that he is ruined.
I love this film. The characters are interesting and quirky, and yes Mr bloom isn't the greatest actor but his bemused detachment at events unfolding out of his control is most appealing. It's funny, its thought provoking and has a great soundtrack.
surprisingly good. I had reasonable expectations of this but found the film quite delightful in the way it created an interesting storyline out of a low key start. quite an exceptional story with engaging stars and a clever resolution. loved the music as well.
