    This movie did not get all the hype of a Hollywood blockbuster. I only came to know about it from our local discount theatre previews. We wanted to see it when it arrived and was even more anxious to see it after my daughter and son in law gave us raving reviews. I loved this movie!! One of the first movies in a long time that I am giving 5 full bags of popcorn. The story of a drifter and a Down Syndrome young adult holds you right to the end without any dull moments. It also brought me back great memories of the time we spent on the US east coast in our RV travels. I want to put this movie with the same classic hits as Of Mice and Men and The Railman. Thanks to the our local discount theatre for one "up ing" the big theatre and bringing this great film to town. Please review my blog at https://wordpress.com/view/reviewsbyjohnny.movie.blog

    I thought it was so phenomenally and mesmerizingly perfect!!!! The storyline, the interaction of the actors was so sublime..... even after weeks since its showing it still reverberates its message

    It passed the time. I'm really not sure what all the excitement's about. The actors did a passable job, though none of them have any real charisma. I didn't care for the setting at all. I lived in the South for four years and the movie captured it perfectly. And they're headed for Florida!? Florida is awful: flat, one-story, low-lying houses, dirt and shrubs, enormous insects and rats, and bad, bad weather--all year round. It is NOT the sunshine state. I would have been more impressed if they had decided on Arizona or New Mexico.

    I’ll go one better than the film poster tagline and say this is the best feel good movie of the century. Yes I know we are only 19 years in but hey. At a time in our history when social media has become an avenue to propagate hate and fear using political views, race, selective amnesia on what our actions/words mean and cause, using names and words like Hitler, racist etc so freely this film reminds us of what it is to be human. When Tyler, played beautifully by Shia LaBeouf, who is on the run feels lumbered with Zak a Down syndrome teenager escaping a future he doesn’t want the unexpected happens. Humanity is at the very core of this perfectly crafted story of what happens when we stop thinking of ourselves and truly think of others. This is the first time I’ve seen an adult punch a child and wasn’t horrified. The unlikely pairing of Zak, played wonderfully by Zach Gottsagen who also has Down’s syndrome in real life, takes on a journey leading to encounters with others that show the beauty of the human spirit. And some of its ugliness too. Great script, direction, production and acting. A must watch. 5 out of 5.

    Great acting job by all of the actors, I didn’t even know that Shila LaBeouf was even on this, not a big fan, but it’s a great family film with a good message!
