Movie Info

Fred (Colm Meaney) lives a quiet and isolated life in his car, having lost all hope of improving his situation and re-entering the ranks of society. That all changes when he forms an unlikely friendship with Cathal (Colin Morgan), a dope-smoking 21-year-old with a positive attitude, who becomes his parking lot neighbor. Sharing laughs, and the hard times too, Fred and Cathal find the simple, free pleasures of life. (c) Olive Films

Critic Reviews for Parked

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

"Parked" collapses into sentimentality that not even an actor of Mr. Meaney's dignity and restraint can redeem from mawkishness.

Nov 29, 2012 | Rating: 2/5

This engaging character study functions best as a two-hander: The male leads build a wholly believable, offbeat co-dependency, while their interactions with others tend toward the more generic.

[An] elegant, engaging meditation on displacement and the modern man.

Nov 27, 2012 | Full Review…

Strong performances bolster a dodgy scenario in homeless drama.

Nov 26, 2012 | Full Review…

All of the actors put in perfectly acceptable performances but none can do much about the brittle plot-fodder stereotypes they are forced to work with.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Infused with the visceral impact of raw truth connected to the homeless insider point of view looking out at a callous world. But when it comes to the director's outside looking in perspective, there's a second hand sense of little felt or endured.
