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.

Pleasant Surprise
20 August 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The dangerous escapee Jean Clarkson (Renée Humphrey) reaches a gas station and hitchhikes. Eldon (Boyd Kestner) and his young son Cole (Tanner Ritchie) that are traveling together in a road trip to learn the real America give a ride to her. When Cole stays alone with Jean, he tells that Eldon has abducted him and is not his father and asks her to help him. Jean feels a dilemma but she decides to risk her freedom to help her boy. Along the journey, Jean discloses that Eldon is an unstable man and does not hesitate to kill whoever tries to separate him from Cole.

"Family" is a low-budget movie with a bleak beginning when a criminal takes a ride with an insane abductor and none of them two knows that the other is not telling the truth. The plot becomes tense when the boy reveals that his name is Jeremy and the man is not his father. The second half of the story is weaker but not bad and in the end this film is a pleasant surprise. The open conclusion is very intelligent and unusual in American movies. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Família do Mal" ("Evil Family")
