Storyline

Brandi is a hard-partying, overworked, nursing assistant desperate for a promotion at the retirement home where she works. After a night of drug-binging and partying, she accidentally hits a certain Thomas Bardo a deadbeat and recently evicted man who gets stuck in the windshield of her car. Not wanting to call for help since she is driving under the influence, Brandi chooses not to get Thomas medical help and instead drives home and leaves him clinging to life on the windshield of her car. While Brandi frantically tries to decide what she is going to do, Thomas tries to free himself knowing his time is running out.

Trivia

When the Receptionist calls Thomas to his appointment, she mistakenly calls him "Mr. Brado." This suggests that the reason he is not "in the computer" is a clerical error on the part of the job agency. See more »

Goofs

When Bardo is seen walking down the street, you can see the visible breath of a crumbier on the right side of the shot. This is apparently due to the cold temperature on the night this was filmed. See more »

The Turning Point
11 October 2007 | by loosewiggSee all my reviews

When does an ordinary person become monstrous; what is the trigger; when is the fatal turning point? Is fear an acceptable reason for selfishness, brutality and a headlong flight from responsibility?

Gordon deals admirably with this dilemma using a crafty balance of horror and humor in a bloody film about a hit & run driver who becomes inhuman while the victim remains human and humane through relentless pain, shock, & bad luck.

Both Stephen Rea and Mena Suvari offer up fine performances as a middle class guy down on his luck and a hard working and hard playing young woman in a tough and demanding job.
