Excellent, unique story in a male roadtrip format
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky to have had the chance to see this fim at the 2006 Atlanta Film Festival, where the main character and director were both present- and I got an autograph. Though there are some who compare this film to Sideways, amazingly enough, the screenplay was written before Sideways was heard of, in 2001. Backseat is a roadtrip movie for the 20-30 year old generation, an East Coast version, one with likable characters that the audience can vest an interest in and come to care about fully. It's unpretentious, non-sleazy and hits on the reality of male friendships that goes deep below the surface level of a couple of guys talking about "chicks". Watch for this film on the festival circuit or in theatres if someone is wise enough to pick it up soon. It's wonderful.
