The Open Road (2009): review: 4/10

A baseball player's mother is ill. At her insistance, he goes to find his father- a famous baseball player, drunk and egotist- to bring him to her, taking along an ex-girlfriend for company.

This is a road movie with some beautful scenery, concerning the triangulated relationship of the three. It is well-acted, but laboured and overlong, with Jeff Bridges in particular overplaying his hand.
