You can’t choose your family but you can choose these Top 10 Family Road Trip Movies! AN ACTOR PREPARES is Available on Digital HD NOW
An Actor Prepares is a father & son road trip movie that matches two strong characters (and actors) head-to-head in the ultimate comedic face off.
In the film, Atticus Smith (Jeremy Irons) is a highly celebrated actor, whose spectacular career is matched only by his rugged good looks and effortless, devilish charm. Atticus’ estranged son, Adam (Jack Huston), is nothing like his philandering, drinking, devil-may-care father. He is a staunch feminist who teaches women’s film studies and is devoted to his girlfriend.
When a medical condition forces Atticus to hitch a ride from LA to NYC to be at his daughter’s wedding, Adam becomes his only option. And so begins their madcap, odd couple journey across the United States. The farther they go on their journey, and the more crazy adventures they share, the closer they come together until the scoundrel and the do-gooder see that they might not be as different from one another as they think.
