Storyline

High Road showcases a totally improvised script about Glenn "Fitz" Fitzgerald (James Pumphery), a young man whose loyalties are split among his band, his girlfriend Monica (Abby Elliott) and selling weed. After his band breaks up, Fitz finds himself dealing pot out of his garage and bonding with a rebellious 16-year-old Jimmy (Dylan O'Brien). As his former band mates (Zach Woods, Matt L. Jones, Lizzy Caplan) find success and one of his drug deals goes awry, Fitz and Jimmy hit the road. Amid guns, broken bones, sassy cabbies, rude hookers, and a suspicious doctor (Horatio Sanz), Fitz has to navigate their way to safety-and he doesn't even know about the surprise Monica has in store for him back home!

More fun than funny
26 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had to read about this movie after watching as throughout it from start to finish there is just something odd about it. To my surprise I discovered the film is mostly improvised.

The cast (which includes some notable names) pulls this odd ball story off with great success! For improvised dialog it all fits and shows what a skilled cast can achieve.

The movie starts with each character only focused on their personal needs and with little concern for others. Fitz (the main character)has made a mess of his life but has a girl that loves him - unfortunately for Fitz he can't see this. Through a series of 'events' Fitz escapes to visit his father. At the 'Berlin Bar' Fitz learns his lesson and heads back to his girl. The others also learn a life lesson.

This is a simple story nicely told and bravo to the actors! There are a few slow moments but the movie is most entertaining!
