At some point in our lives, we’ve all felt like just giving up and escaping the day-to-day hassle that binds us to a meaningless life. We all crave for something that would give us more value and make us feel our existence even more. But the more we grow up, the more distant this freedom seems to be. We can’t just abandon everything in our present lives to live a so-called better life. Also, most of us lack the courage to take that leap into the unknown. But not Juanita! Completely done with her disrespectful children and tiring borderline lifestyle, Juanita takes a Greyhound bus to Montana and dives right into the unknown in the hope that she’ll be able to reawaken herself from the nightmare that she had been living.
For obvious reasons, we can no way do what she did. But we can get that tiny tinge of escape from reality by watching others do what we dream of doing on the silver screen. So, here’s the list movies similar to ‘Juanita’ that are our recommendations. You can watch several of these movies like ‘Juanita’ on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
