Storyline

Jessie deals with a bad breakup, by purchasing a sheet of acid to share with his friends back home in Missouri. He hopes this will erase the bad memory of his college girlfriend, delivering the heartbreaking news to him, during sex. Departing New Orleans, Jessie detours onto Route 61, seeking a change of routine from the monotony of the Interstate. Unexpectedly, his engine fails at a forgotten trailer park in Cleveland, Mississippi. Fearful he's about to be harmed by bikers, Jessie exchanges hits of L.S.D. for safe passage home. During the ebb and flow of the day, Jessie experiences the extraordinary in the pedestrian, whilst resurrecting the lives of many. Inspired by a true misadventure. Written by Trailer Park Jesus

An excellent time
24 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of attending a viewing of this film recently and had a great time. From start to finish, there were lots of laughs, excellent character development, a great dialog, as well as some impressive editing work and special effects.

I particularly enjoyed the characters Paul and Luke, a zany pair of friends that meet the main character Jesse at a gas station after his car brakes down in Cleveland, Mississippi. Paul and Luke promise to make sure Jesse makes it to the bus depot so he can take the next bus out of town, but what ensues is a hilarious scene where the trailer park turns into an all out trip-fest.

TPJ leaves the viewer feeling they have seen a film that translates the true vision of the writer/director. Not operating at the behest of a big budget studio, this film isn't scared to poke fun at some of the stereotypes of rural trailer park life, recreational drug use, or invoke the religious aspect. With film technology more accessible than ever these days, it's great to see that companies like Backyard Shed can retain the creative indie spirit while also making a high quality production.

I won't be surprised to see this one winning a few more film festival awards before all is said and done!
