Helen Mirren is the protagonist along with Donald Sutherland of Paolo Virzì’s english language debut The Leisure Seeker, in competition at the 74th Venice International Film Festival. The Oscar winner talks about her role in the film, a woman who is bossy, charming, who loves life, loves to engage in life and a character Helen Mirren likes thinking to have things in common with. Helen Mirren defines The Leisure Seeker not only a love story but “a tale of seeking liberation”.

The Leisure Seeker: The film stars Academy Award-winner® Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner® Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, travelling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West. They recapture 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.
