Storyline

When Eldon and Cole pick up a hitchhiker, Jean on their father-son trip to find perspective on the back roads of America, they quickly learn that everything is not what it seems. As the road unfolds in front of them, so do their lives begin to intertwine. A small-time crook on the run, an ex-cop and his quiet ten-year-old son begin to bond together - at least until the secrets begin slipping out. Before Jean can figure out what is really going on, she finds herself already trapped in a spiraling nightmare where she will have to make a choice between turning her back on a little boy who needs her help, or sacrificing herself and going back to jail.

dark road movie
27 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

A man, Eldon (Boyd Kestner), and his son, Cole (Tanner Richie), while on a road trip in the Southwest, pick up Jean (Rene Humphrey), a drifter with a checkered past. As the trip progresses, tensions build between Jean and Eldon, and they learn more than they ever wanted to know about each other.

I like this independent-type movie, but a major drawback is its plodding pace. The pacing notwithstanding, it is otherwise intriguing. I watched with great eagerness to see what happened next, and it is Kestner that keeps the film lively. He is a talented actor and it is evident here. The interactions among all three principals are mostly credible.

Family is a plodding, dark road movie that premiered on LMN tonight.
