What is it about?
Claire and Thom both lead lives they are not entirely truthful about and have been running from for a longtime. In a turn of events that has lead them on a road trip to California, they learn to face their problems together.
Who is in it?
Sam Jaeger - Thom
Amber Jaeger - Claire
After returning from California, Claire is in the Taxi with her husband and the taxi driver, both who are on the phone. She then realizes the comforting silence she had with Thom is something she doesn't have with her husband.
Thom: Eventually you have to settle down.
Claire: Some people settle down, and some people just settle.
Thom: Well, it's clear which category you fit into.
Take Me Home is yet just another indie film that is a good watch. While the film is categorized as a "Romantic Comedy", it really doesn't feel like one as it is filled with great dialogue, an interesting plot, and overall, a great message on life, love, and happiness.
Oddly, Amber Jaeger and Sam Jaeger, married in real life, are in the lead roles of Thom and Claire. Both do a good job in their roles as the two souls hiding who they truly are. The scenery is also tremendous as they take the cross country trip from New York to California.
Take Me Home is a rock solid film with a great moral for those who enjoy films that provoke thinking on life and the second chances it provides us.
Definitely a solid choice to watch, especially for the 97 minute running time.
