After retiring from his job as an insurance agent, a disheartened elderly man takes long road trip to attend his estranged daughter’s wedding. An excellent character study with a light comedic taste.
Jack Nicholson stars as Warren Schmidt in a supreme performance, much different from his usual roles. Great support from Kathy Bates. A film about the laughs and tragedies of living, about a man who tries to find the ambition to push forward late on in his life.
Touching, funny and philosophical. Excellent direction all around.
Well received by critics and audience. Received two Oscar nominations and was part of the Official Competition at Cannes. Described as one of the best films of the year.
