Carl Foster takes off on a well-deserved weekend break with his family knowing only too well that focus on work has impacted his relationship with his wife, young son, and teenage step-daughter. But after a short but restful break in the journey Carl awakens to find himself tied and bound in an old roadside diner, his family trussed and gagged next to him, and a disparate group of dirty, dishevelled, vagrant-like undesirables keeping them captive.

Before production began the Director was nearly killed in a car accident when the vehicle he was driving caught fire in the outside lane of the M1 motorway near Sheffield and he was forced to take evasive action and move onto the hard shoulder. Though extremely fortunate the irony of this situation was not lost on him. See more »

A dark and violent psychological debut from Nicholas David Lean
I had the pleasure of attending a private screening of Hard Shoulder through a friend.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the director Nicholas David Lean's film debut, but I was very glad I got to watch it.
When the Hard Shoulder starts out you're not sure what to expect, another film about an unhappy family? No. This is after all a psychological thriller. After setting the scene of a unhappy family trying to hold things together, the film gradually builds up the tension and takes a very dark, disturbing and violent turn. Then just when you think you have a grasp of what's going on there is a brilliantly unexpected twist.
There is some great acting turns in the film from the likes of Lucy Drive, and Jamie Foreman. Jamie now better known as Derek Branning from Eastenders.
I'm not sure when this film is out on general release, but if you get the chance, go see it!
