Movie Info

A wandering free-spirit begins to second guess her nomadic lifestyle after forging a connection with three people who make her feel like family in this life-affirming drama from director Marcio Garcia (Bed & Breakfast). Angie (Camilla Belle) is an artist who was becoming trapped in a life that she didn't want. Taking flight, she found the freedom she craved on the open road, occasionally waitressing when he funds began to run low. She never knew the warmth of a true human connection until she encountered a wise drifter (Andy Garcia), a charming small-town cop (Colin Egglesfield) and his kindhearted yet slightly suspicious sister (Juliette Lewis). Now that Angie has found people who really care about her, she finally starts to understand how it feels to have a home. Could it be that she's finally found a place where she can settle down, or is this merely the first stop on her long journey to self-discovery?

Audience Reviews for Open Road

★★ (out of four) What starts out as a nice, character driven piece, eventually ends up as a confusing mess where the big relevation is a predictable bore and the characters become dull and uninteresting. Camilla Belle stars as a young woman who has lefy her home in Brazil and traveled to the U.S. in hopes of finding the man who abandoned her and her sister years ago. She sleeps in her car and is nervous to get close to anyone. One day she meets an attractive cop (Colin Egglesfield) and decides to settle for awhile in the small town. When he begins to get close to her, however, she starts to feel the need to bolt, not letting anyone into her mysterious world. Belle is an appealing young actress, but her character just comes across as a bit too eccentric. There are some violent dream sequences that hint as to why she is so stand-offish, but they are never reallu explained, leaving the viewer confused as to her motives. [IMG][/IMG]

Overall, boring. Horribly predictable. I was expecting so much more with Andy Garcia in it. 2 thumbs down from me.

Everybody will probably hate it. But I loved. A lot. Seriously. Marcio has sensibility and I think that I would even give it a 5, however I didn't agree with the end! Ot the soundtrack.
