Fun little gem of a movie
21 March 2016 | by dickdonnerSee all my reviews

I caught this film while scanning for race films. It was a small little movie with an obviously very small budget, but the story was very moving and some of the driving sequences were actually pretty well done. The music was great too.

The story is actually about three separate races and it is very apparent that the filmmakers shot the flick across the country. Some of the lighting was a spotty, but the production was actually pulled off pretty well with some very fun editing - split scenes, etc. Some of the dialogue scenes went on a little long, but it is light and fun.

The four leads were all great too, very understated performances.
