Ride The Eagle starring Jake Johnson
There are plenty of stories about coming of age stories for teenagers before they become adults. In this new century, even adults must find their way through life somehow as they’re just as lost as teenagers and children. In Ride The Eagle, it is an adult coming of story of a man, who is being taught life lessons by his recently deceased mother.
The very likable New Girl’s Jake Johnson co-penned the script and star in this indie comedy about a man who is about to inherit a cabin. The film also stars Susan Sarandon, J.K. Simmons, and D’Arcy Carden. Trent O’Donnell directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Johnson.
Here’s the official synopsis of Ride The Eagle:
When Lief’s (Jake Johnson) estranged mother Honey (Susan Sarandon) dies, she leaves him a ‘conditional inheritance.’ Before he can move into her picturesque Yosemite cabin, he has to complete her elaborate, and sometimes dubious, to-do list. Leif and Nora, his canine BFF, step into Honey’s wild world as she tries to make amends from beyond the grave in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.

Jake Johnson is a great likable comedic actor. He does have an affinity to tell great indie stories and star in them, such as Digging for Fire and Win It All. As a plus, he teams with television director Trent O’Donnell, who has comedy credits with The Good Place, A.P. Bio, and the new Saved by the Bell.
By judging by this trailer alone, this is a touching story that’ll make you curious on what specific lessons the dead mother trying to teach her son—and possibly match the single man towards the love of his life.
