Vincent (Robert Sheehan) is a young man with Tourette’s syndrome who was close to his mother, who has passed away. His father, Robert (Robert Patrick) is running for office, so to avoid embarrassment, he packs Vincent off to a clinic run by unconventional Dr. Mia Rose (Kyra Sedgwick). But when Vincent meets and falls for a anorexic patient Marie (Zoe Kravitz) he kidnaps his room mate, Alex (Dev Patel) who has a germ phobia and major OCD, steals the Doctor’s car and heads out on a road trip to the ocean to scatter his Mom’s ashes. What follows is a rather hilarious dysfunctional road trip.

This was a surprising little film which features some great acting by three primary characters all of which have devastating disabilities, but who want to function normally. The director shows us these problems by developing the situations around that which makes them the most uncomfortable. There is a lot of humor here, but I feel they really showcased the talent of the actors and really developed in us an affinity to the characters that is remarkable. It was as if I could feel what it was like to have these problems along with the characters. The humor was refreshing, but there is also a lot of heart here as well. It is a touching film. In addition to the major three characters, the interaction between Dr. Rose and Vincent’s father is quite interesting as well, and even more substantial is the father-son relationship between Vincent and his father. All in all, this is an interesting film with a lot of interesting side stories, but with superior character development. I really enjoyed this.
