Coast to Coast is 2003 American-Canadian made-for-television drama film starring Richard Dreyfuss, Judy Davis, and Selma Blair, and directed by Paul Mazursky. It is based on the 1998 novel by Frederic Raphael, who also wrote film's screenplay.
Barnaby and Maxine Pierce are a middle-aged couple exploring the ups and downs of a marriage that has spun out of control. They have decided to divorce, but take one last cross country road trip from Connecticut to Los Angeles to attend the wedding of their son and give him their vintage Thunderbird as a gift. By reflecting on the life they've shared together, the couple begins to re-evaluate their marriage and discover the possibility of rekindling their relationship.
Today praised Richard Dreyfuss's performance, and described the film as "often funny, more often bittersweet. Familiar yet unpredictable. And refreshingly adult." The New York Times gave the film a positive review, calling it "very engaging".
