The encounter gives him a new lease of life and hope, spurring him on to travel to California and re-ignite a connection from his youth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bridging the generation gap 4 July 2010
By Ernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Tom Gerrin is a 75 year old widower who finds himself at the mercy of decisions made for him by his two daughters and two sons after the death of his wife. Under pressure from his family he moves into his sons' home, but becomes irritated with the way they overprotect him, making decisions on his behalf and treating him almost as one of their children. While walking home, Tom comes close to being run over by Leanne a young female college student who is driving across the country to visit her parents in California. This chance meeting prompts Tom to spontaneously hitch a ride with the young woman on her cross country journey to California in order to meet up with an old sweetheart he had not seen for 50 years. On their journey Tom and Leanne's friendship blossoms and the generational gap of their friendship helps them both to reflect and later understand to what is important in their lives and why the family members closest to you, behave the way they do. Interspersed with witty dialogue and escapades with various characters they meet along the way.
The Long Way Home is a gentle heart warming feel good movie that touches on the bittersweet relationship between parents and their children and the ageism and ignorance that often separates them.
