The Open Road is a heartwarming comedy about a young man looking to reconnect with his long-lost father and bring him back to the bedside of his ailing mother. In the film, minor leaguer Carlton Garret (Timberlake) takes an unexpected road trip to track down his estranged father, legendary baseball player Kyle Garret (Bridges) when Carlton’s mother (Steenburgen) becomes sick. Knowing his charming yet painfully immature dad’s likelihood to disappoint, Carlton enlists his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy (Mara) for emotional support. Once reunited, Carlton struggles to deal with the series of misadventures caused by his father’s antics, including missed flights, car trouble and bathroom brawls. Years of miscommunication, frustration and comically awkward attempts at bonding come to a head as the mismatched trio make their way from Ohio back home to Houston to reunite the family.
