Storyline

In New York City, Thom is broke and jobless, illegally working as a taxi driver just to make some quick cash to try and pay his rent. Claire is a successful business-woman, but personally she's in shambles trying to recover from a bump in her marriage and then comes the phone call that her distant father is in the hospital. Not knowing what to do, Claire hops in Thom's cab and orders him to just drive. And so he does. The duo find themselves in Pennsylvania and make the rash decision to drive across the country. On the road to California, there are many detours, as the obstacles and secrets force them to learn about themselves and each other. Written by napierslogs

Claire and Thom meet when she randomly chooses his cab, and tells him to "Just drive."
4 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I saw this movie at the Savannah Film Fest, and we thought it was excellent. The characters and the problems with which they dealt seemed real, could've been us or our family members. There were no easy solutions. The writing was subtle and genuinely funny. The filming showed off the country beautifully. The minor characters were well crafted, especially Clair's mother. As the action moves from the frenetic pace of the city through the numbing boredom of major highways to the serenity of nature's wide open spaces, the characters face their inner conflicts and fears. They grow separately, but in that way that others often see us more clearly than we can see ourselves, they also each contribute to the other.

The test of a good movie is whether it invokes interesting discussion afterward. We talked about this one all the way through dinner and the ride home. Do yourself a favor and see it.
