Help me identify an 80s road trip movie about two young (as in middle school age) brothers searching for their father. Details inside.

This movie was definitely a drama. I'm not sure why they were going to see the father - possibly to avoid foster care after their mother's death.
What I remember:
-they stopped to pick up a female hitchhiker
-they run out of gas and have to walk to the next gas station
-the older brother always drives with his hood on because he's afraid someone will see how young he is
-they stop at a movie theater and have an amazing time
-there may be a scene at an airport where the older brother realizes that they aren't going to make it because they have no money left
