Storyline

Rey gave up his chance at college and love to raise his young half-brother Oliver, who looks nothing like him - "same mom, different dads." But when his meth addicted mother, Lola, is released from prison determined to rebuild her family, Rey kidnaps his younger brother and escapes their desert home for the California coast, chasing the dream that he let go years ago. Lola turns to her ex-husband Bo to help find her missing boys, bringing up ghosts from their own failed relationship. With nothing but the open road ahead of them, and Lola and Bo in close pursuit, Rey and Oliver race away from a past they never wanted, towards a future that could have been. Written by Chris B.

Enjoyable and moving film, not a romance!
3 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Based on the trailer, I was expecting this to be a romance movie, but this is so much more than that.

Run The Tide is a touching movie about family, brotherhood and sacrifice, a road trip movie beautifully shot with a few twists and turns along the way.

The performance by Taylor Lautner is solid, in a "serious" role that really puts him into a new light and will hopefully expand his fan base.

Overall, this is a terrific first picture for Soham Mehta and Rajiv Shah and a sign of great things to come.
