What happens if Melissa Leo and Tessa Thompson will want to spend time together? Comedic talents of the Actresses enough to create a strong bond with a giddy and neither an applying drama "Vacation", but that's just any style the picture is not enough. In the end it destroys the attempts of the script to beat the emotions.

The story "Home" tells the story of Nicole, a guard in a women's prison of the state of new York. The girl must accompany the prisoner at the name Joan, of which the prison provided a kind of vacation to get to see the dying mother. Nicole reluctantly takes the job because her mother requires attention and care and regularly dismayed by the endless calls.

Despite that the heroine similar with their spiritual wounds and an extraordinary relationship with on-screen mothers, Joan and Nicole are complete opposites — as supposed prisoner and her chaperone. The characters fall in the wonderful world of road movie, in which Joan is glad to finally leave the prison.

However, all that could give the perfect, or at least stretch film in good sense, look dull and indecisive. What makes "Vacation" so fake and boring, so it is a desperate desire to make it more sweet than in real life. A subtle mixture of Comedy and drama as it often happens in reality, becomes shameless Hollywood syrup. The problem begins with the demonstration of a terrible person heroine Whoopi Goldberg, who turns out to be annoying, but not affectionate. The brutality of Joanna's, for example, is designed to its full features, similar to slipping into a farce, following the rules Nicole becomes just another boring item. Attempts to play on the kind this household do not work because the story "Vacation" never goes to meet realistic notes. It is impossible to even believe some of the details of the plot, especially given the nature of Nicole.

Tessa Thompson, whose career went in the mountain, deserves project bigger and better than"Vacation". In her acting talents in this drama, there are many annoying and from Thompson have choice but to follow the bad traits of his character. In any case, Tessa Thompson — best actress here and very sorry Whoopi Goldberg went so not enough screen time.

Incredibly manipulative "Vacation" reaches of madness in the final act, trying to bring a certain emotion in context. It is extremely sharp, even without a particular context and reference to characters, simply spoils the whole material. The total failure of "Vacation" can not be called, but the drama is below average by far.
