Life in the Backseat
4 April 2008 | by (Austin, Tx.) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best coming of middle age style stories I've ever seen translated into a film. Wonderful job to both the writer and director on truly capturing the anxiety, the indecision, the confusion and the loneliness of middle age restlessness. A very touching, very real, very relatable story of two good buddies just trying to break away and find direction for their lives in the process. Very good overall. The characters were engaging, the story was real, and the situations were something anyone in that age group can and should be able to relate to. The desire to find that one "thing" in your life to give it meaning was really told in a very touching manner, that give a real and sympathetic view to the choices we all make life that are made out of necessity at times, and not because we really agree with them.
