Storyline

A love story - a young man for an older woman and his best friend and his Chevrolet. Jake is a romantic with a vision. Ringe is his whiplash wild best mate. Their lives in a small northern town are bleak with unemployment and domestic wrangles. But then Susan, the 'older woman', moves in next door. Inexorably, events lead Jake, Ringe and Susan to a bid for freedom and the open road in the sleek American car the lads have renovated. Then their troubles really begin. Written by Film 4

One for the road
12 January 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A road movie about road movies. Two young men hope to fulfill their dreams by hitting the open road in a classic American car they have lovingly restored. Taking along the sultry divorcee with whom one of them has fallen in love is an idea bound to cause tension. A quirky and worthwhile drama, with David "Naked" Thewlis impressive again and even the normally plastic Clive Owen giving a good account of himself.
