Henry wants to celebrate family, as does Zach, Jason's son; Jason is angry and distant, Turner seems detached and says he's got a bus to catch in the morning.

Watch Around the Bend (2004) - Alternative Versions.
I picked up on AROUND THE BEND for the actors, in particular Josh
Lucas, one of the underrated actors of his generation. With Michael
Caine and Christopher Walken also in the cast, I was further intrigued.
After catching it at the Austin Film Festival, I can't recommend this
If you've ever had to make peace with a prodigal family member
-particularly a parent- and a grandparent who manipulated matters make
reconciliations- this story will resonate deeply.
Jason (Lucas) lives with his ailing grandfather Henry (Caine), and son
Zach (Jonah Bobo), and a live nurse. When Jason's father, Turner
(Walken) suddenly shows up, we instantly learn of abandonment and a lot
left unsaid. Henry insists on a road trip, and everyone declines; Henry
settles the matter by dying just after planning it with the help of
Using Kentucky Fried Chicken as a metaphor for plastic living, the
three survivors start out on a journey of discovery and ash-spreading.
The expected dark secret and bonding occurs, but it's a journey worth
exploring with these three.
The cast is excellent, and have great chemistry; the only shame is that
due to the storyline, Caine had so little time on screen. Bobo is
absolutely amazing as young Zach; he gets as much done with a glance
and a head move that veteran actors hope to accomplish; this kid is
someone to watch for in the future. The soundtrack is outstanding,
relying on 8 track music which really sets the mood without ever
overwhelming, and only a few original piano based pieces by David
Baerwald. All in all, story and structure it's a well made film.
This is not a male chick flick. It's about family, and reconciliation,
even when someone isn't perfect. Writer/Director Jordan Roberts was
inspired by his own father/son story when writing this.
AROUND THE BEND has a good balance between humor and heart, and more
than worth your consideration.
