'The Leisure Seeker' Took Us on a Wild Ride at the 2018 Spring KCET Cinema Series
Following a screening of “The Leisure Seeker,” producer Dov Mamann attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond. The Leisure Seeker stars Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe®-winner Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call “The Leisure Seeker.” The couple travels from Boston to Ernest Hemingway’s home in Key West, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.
