Trivia

The film was originally going to be a Scott Free Productions project, when it was acquired in 2008. Joe Russo was to direct, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott were to be the executive producers, Michael Costigan was to be the producer and Jim Sturgess was to play Sidney Hall. Pre-production halted in 2009, however, and no development took place until the writer, Shawn Christensen, looked to take the project under his wing in late 2014. See more »

An exception tri-linear character study w/ outstanding performances both in front of & behind the camera.
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at its premiere at Sundance and having gone in with no knowledge of the production or any expectations whatsoever I can honestly say to you that this film was AMAZING and HEARTBREAKINGLY BRILLIANT. From the get go, this all-American on-the-road tale told through THREE different timelines had me HOOKED. Writers Sean Christensen and Jason Dolan create a narrative that is part detective cat-n- mouse, part suburban tragedy, as well as being an immensely effective dramatic character examination. Their DP Daniel Katz presented their story through a lens that reminded me of the classic American Beat Novels that surely live and breath within the films protagonist. Not only did Logan Lerman give his strongest and deepest performance to date but Blake Jenner & Kyle Chandler & Elle Fanning (can she do any wrong?!) stole the show in their supporting roles. It's a film deftly crafted with heart & nuance - and it finales at an emotional crescendo where few films do. It's a film for the mad ones (to quote one of the films Inspirations). I could go on and on about how important and brave and sincere this film is - but why don't you just go see it for yourself, eh?
