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.

Good Film Noir
6 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie, even though I knew nothing of it prior to viewing.

It is genuinely creepy for the first half, as you do not quite know who these characters are - towards the second part of the movie the general idea becomes revealed.

The interactions between the three main characters are well done and one senses a change taking place in the female lead.

I did find the voice repetition annoying and there were somewhat too many shootings. But the characters never end up over-acting or over-stating themselves; usually a problem in this type of film.

It's a movie that takes you into the predicament and is entertaining.
