Movie Info

Mile Zero, director Andrew Currie's feature debut, focuses on the emotional journey of a distraught father, Derek (Michael Riley), who feels his estranged wife, Allison (Sabrina Grdevich), and his young son, Will (Connor Widdows of the Agent Cody Banks movies), slipping away from him. He surprises Will after school one day, taking him on a long journey through British Columbia to a remote spot in the Canadian Rockies. The movie jumps back and forth between the tense journey that Derek and Will are making, and home videos and flashbacks of happier times, and the gradual dissolution of the marriage. Derek doesn't cope well with their separation, even going so far as to surreptitiously install a video monitor in his son's room so he can watch Will sleep. When Allison starts seeing someone new, Derek's fantasies of reconciliation collapse, sending him down a desperate path that ends up endangering more than just his fragile relationship with Will. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

Admirable but claustrophobic.

In its rawness, Mile Zero can be brutal to watch, but it has an emotional honesty found in too few dramas.

...elevated considerably by [star Michael] Riley's central performance, which is often far more compelling and intriguing than anything else in the film.

Reel Film Reviews

one of those movies with good direction and vision, rock-solid acting, and no distribution

By-the-book story structure and safe drama seem like desperate pleading for international distribution.
