A road movie that goes beyond Hope and Crosby
1 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We saw this at the Buffalo-Niagara Film Festival and we fell in love with Lemonade, the beautiful Asian sprite who joins two middle-aged strangers in a cross-country trek to deliver a car to Washington DC. Many of your typical conventions are present. Each character has a back story that takes more or less time to evolve, each has some annoying peccadillo(s) that irritates the others, and there are the unexpected detours -- some literal, some metaphorical -- that interrupt their progress. The result, however, isn't trite, but engaging.

If the story itself isn't enough though, the knowledge that the entire movie was recorded digitally on Apple (R) iPhone 4's makes it worth a view. The clarity was impressive, the transitions fairly smooth. The rougher transitions reminded me of Kevin Smith's first effort, Clerks.

Film students will go for the novelty but leave with an appreciation of the total package. Film lovers should just sit back and enjoy the ride.
