Storyline

Neal Oliver is a young artist, but his father doesn't like his choice and wants him to go to Oxford. Everything changes after Neal's meeting with O.W.Grant, who grants exactly one wish per person, as his name suggests. Neal wishes for answers, and so he must travel to the nonexistent Danver by the nonexistent Interstate 60. In this trip he hopes to find the girl of his dreams, following the trail of her photos on the advertising stands along the route. Many encounters await him ahead. Will he receive what he asked for?

Trivia

The character of O.W. Grant is a compilation of many different trickster figures in world mythologies. It is stated that he is half-leprechaun, which is shown in his red hair. Also, the monkey pipe is a reference to the Monkey figure of Eastern mythologies. The pipe's smoke can also be interpreted as a reference to Djinni. See more »

Goofs

During the first car scenes on the I60, especially the ones where Laura is sitting on the passengers seat, you can more then clearly see a crew member sitting next to the car door on the passengers side just "riding along". This is so obvious that it gets pretty annoying since it happens a couple of times. In one scene you can even see him wear a red scarf. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Neal Oliver: [voiceover] Given an infinite universe and infinite time, all things will happen. That means that every event is inevitable, including those that are impossible. And it's as good an explanation for all of this as anything else. Now, a lot of stories start in bars, so that's where we're going to start this one. Not because I was there - I wasn't. But because it's a damn good introduction to a very unique... fellow.

Fascinating gem.
13 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bob Gale, the genius screenwriter who brought us the BACK TO THE FUTURE films, proves himself yet again with this truly amazing, wholly original film.

A young man goes on a journey on a seemingly nonexistent highway, through seemingly nonexistent towns en route to delivering a mysterious package to a person he has never heard of. The journey carries him through a mystical potpourri of different people, places, and adventures. I don't want to say too much about them because I don't want to spoil anything, and because the journey has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Words cannot describe how fascinating this film is; a thought-provoking, irresistible gem of a film which is much abetted by perfect casting. James Marsden, Gary Oldman, Christopher Lloyd, and Amy Smart all turn in stellar performances. Oldman is particularly good in a very atypical role; his is another offbeat role for which he is known.

***1/2 out of ****. One of the best films of the past five years, not to be missed.
