This quiet family drama about the healing power of forgiveness and reconciliation is a bit predictable, but the solid acting and thoughtful but always-moving-forward pace keep the viewer engaged. Teens who can handle the language and flashbacks to danger from wildfire will relate to both Hanna's seething resentment of her father and how much she needs him to be a part of her life. They'll also be inspired to empathize with Jack as they learn more about his past.

Like a lot of road movies, you could argue that the real star of Two Yellow Lines is the gorgeous and lovingly photographed scenery, in this case of the Northwestern United States. It makes as strong a case for giving second chances as it does for taking the time to enjoy the back roads and sleeping out in the open air, and ends on a hopeful note.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
