Storyline

A sheltered, intelligent college student DOUG (RJ Mitte of "Breaking Bad") changes his life forever when he hires an underachieving driver SCOTT (Ray William Johnson of "Equals Three"). In order to escape his oppressively loving MOTHER (Daphne Zuniga), Doug agrees to go on a spontaneous road trip with Scott and his college crush STEPHANIE (Paloma Kwiatkowski of "Bates Motel"). At the height of the journey, a tragic series of events tests their bond and opens the road to self discovery. Drugs, gambling, and romance await the three friends in this honest American coming of age drama. Written by Anonymous

Superb
27 March 2016 | by fourferrisSee all my reviews

I was not expecting to like this film. The summary sounded like any other coming of age story, only a low-budget indie one. Wow, was I surprised. This one was really outside the box, emotionally connected, quite funny, very entertaining and not necessarily all about the coming of age thing (sorry for being vague, don't want to spoil it).

The story was probably the best part as stories based in the real life of the writer often are.

The acting was quite strong. RJ Mitte nailed the lead role, Paloma Kwiatkowski was mesmerizing to watch, and Ray William Johnson turned in a powerful and emotional performance to round out this thoroughly tasty trio of performances.

And, the budget wasn't quite as small as I'd expected. This film looks good, sounds good, and is good. If you're looking for something compelling, heartwarming, and different, this is it.

Hello Netflix people: you should pick this one up. It's something special. (And, I say that as someone who does not know anyone affiliated with the making of this film. Your subscribers need more fresh, unique, new content and it would be hard to imagine them not liking this one).
