One for the road
12 January 1999 | by parky-3See all my reviews

A road movie about road movies. Two young men hope to fulfill their dreams by hitting the open road in a classic American car they have lovingly restored. Taking along the sultry divorcee with whom one of them has fallen in love is an idea bound to cause tension. A quirky and worthwhile drama, with David "Naked" Thewlis impressive again and even the normally plastic Clive Owen giving a good account of himself.
