Take Me Home (2011)
Starring Sam Jaeger, Amber Jaeger
Has anyone heard of this film? I stumbled upon this little gem on Netflix one night when my husband was away. I was specifically looking for something he wouldn't watch with me (I have to take every opportunity!), but I actually think he would have enjoyed it too. It's billed as "Romantic Comedy" and I suppose that's accurate (there is comedy and romance) but the drama seemed more prominent, and that's what pulled me in.
The premise is interesting.... a down-on-his luck man ends up driving a distraught woman across the country in his cab. As they spend the days together they deal with their own personal issues, rely on each other in unexpected ways, and form a deep friendship. There is particular scene of intense honesty that took my breath away. It's a simple story really, but something about it stuck with me; one of the best films I never heard of.
There is some language (no F-bombs... whew!), but no violence, nudity, or sex, though it is briefly implied.
P.S. This isn't really a spoiler, but it is...sort of... since I didn't know this before hand. (And I'm glad I didn't know.) So, in case you, like me, like to be surprised, don't read on. The two starring actors are actually married in real life.
