Three best friends get together and bury a box, making a pact to open it at midnight at their high school graduation. In the small town in Georgia that they live in, things soon change. One is little miss perfect, one is an engaged prom queen, and the other is a pregnant outcast. On the night of their graduation, they open the box and they strike up a conversation. Suddenly, one brings up the topic of her going to Los Angeles for a record contract audition. They all decide to go together and they leave. With a little money, they set out on the road with a guy named Ben. When one of them tells the other a rumor that he might be a homicidal maniac, they are all scared of him. When they reach Los Angeles, Lucy (Britney Spears) falls in love with Ben and against her father's wishes, she stays and she goes to the audition.Written by
Anson Mount was initially reluctant to accept the role of Ben - finding the script to be "cheesy" and "lame" - but was encouraged by Robert De Niro, with whom he was working at the time on City by the Sea (2002). De Niro turned out to be a huge Britney Spears fan. They went over scenes from 'Crossroads' on breaks from 'City by the Sea,' with Mount reading his lines and De Niro reading Spears'. See more »

I have to say I am a huge fan of Meryle Streep, and I have not seen anyone in Meryle caliber untile Britney came out with Crossroads. Britney should put the music aside for a little bit and round up some Acadamy Awards. I'm sure once Robert Dinero and John Malkavich view Crossroads they will beg Britney to do a movie with them. If only Lee Strasberg was alive today to see Britneys performance he would clap and cheer like there was no tomorrow. Crossroads itself is a Cinematic Jewel that deserves to be shown all over the world. God bless the director and Britney for bringing excellence back to the big screen.
