Quite Terrible
18 May 2016 | by larrys3See all my reviews

I wish I could find another way to say it, but this movie is simply terrible. Was the prime motivating factor for even making this film someone needing a tax write off? Mercifully, it's only 1 hr. and 18 mins. in length.

The dialogue and acting is very stilted and the plot elements, for the most part, are ridiculous, nonsensical, and often go unexplained.

Sophie Lowe stars as Lola, a teen who apparently has faked her own kidnapping from her rich and famous parents, in California, and has hitched a ride aboard a tractor trailer into the desert. There at a diner, she foists herself onto a young man, Marlo, who's sitting in a booth there.

Beau Knapp co-stars as Marlo, who's a fingersmith (pickpocket) and also on the run, but he's running away from his sick psycho mother (Dale Dickey). Together, Lola and Marlo will traipse across the desert and encounter all kinds of misadventures.

What the noted actors Robert Taylor (Longmire) and Charles S. Dutton are doing in this movie is beyond me, although the scene with Dutton is rather clever, and I dare say the only one in the film, in my opinion.

All in all, I just found this movie to be one convoluted mess, and I would say don't waste your time or money on it.
