Around the Bend

This sincere little drama concerns four generations of family that are suddenly brought together by tragic circumstance. A great-grandfather (Michael Caine), a grandfather (Christopher Walken), a young father (Josh Lucas) and a 7-year-old son are all united after years of uncomfortable separation. The men eventually vow to set out on the road through the American Southwest on a quest to uncover a long-lost family secret. It's a typical multigenerational drama combined with a typical road movie, and it's kind of a shame the film doesn't pack more energy and emotion. Even so, its an audience pleaser, and the warm cast chemistry successfully distracts from the rather plain story. 85 minutes
