Knight of Cups 2015

     Rick is a writer traveling through Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  He is searching for love and for himself.  He has a complicated relationship with his brother Barry and his father Joseph.  He was married to Nancy, they didn’t have children and they are divorced.  He tries to break his distraction with Nancy, Della, Helen, Elizabeth, Karen and Isabel. 
     I could not get interested in this film but I did watch until the end.  There is a lot of driving, a lot of water, a lot of desert and a lot of parties.  It seems that if you have no connection to family or to yourself, how can you connect with another person?  Everything becomes superficial and without meaning with endless searching?  2* (I didn’t like this movie)
