A deftly presented tragicomedy
17 October 2018 | by MetaflixSee all my reviews

'Thunder Road' is a deftly presented tragicomedy by writer/director/star Jim Cummings. Winner of multiple film festival awards--including SXSW's Grand Jury Award--the movie is a hidden gem amongst a crowded autumn release schedule.
