Passenger Side works through its angsty family-drama-oriented premise with a sarky script, a healthy sense of self-awareness and an amusingly deadpan performance from Adam Scott.

Here's one of those shuffling, slovenly American indies that can seem vain and inconsequential, or inviting and oddly profound, depending on the talent involved.

Enjoyable, well directed indie road movie that's by turns laugh-out-loud funny and quietly moving, thanks to a sharply written, nicely observed script and pair of pitch-perfect performances from Adam Scott and Joel Bissonnette.

Passenger Side is strictly a chamber piece. That chamber just happens to be the bustling, visually diverse landscape of Los Angeles.

The siblings are a bit like Sense and Sensibility's Elinor and Marianne: quaint but somehow universal.

Funnier and more intelligent than there are any grounds to hope for: an entertaining, wry tour of LA's scuzzier sights.

Bissonnette sidesteps the pitfalls of the indie road movie in some style.

A joy from start to finish. Bissonnette has crafted a unique, funny indie.

There's nothing earth-shattering here, but the acting's credible and the wrap-up unexpected.

If genre demands that this sort of story should finish in fraternal reconciliation and a never-ending horizon of happiness, Bissonnette prefers to brake and reverse - and the result, though surprising, feels all the more true to life.

It?s nothing ingenious, but those in the mood for a touch of visual poetry to their familial torment might find plenty to enjoy about this modest drama.

An intriguing and funny ride that doesn't hit you over the head trying to be one thing or another.

Simple and smart, Canadian director Matt Bissonnette's Passenger Side is what's known in theatre circles as a two-hander, a two-person play in which everything depends on dialogue and performance.

Bissonnette achieves a hypnotic effect with Passenger Side. L.A. slides by in a daze, at once inviting and threatening. Michael and Tobey are just two Canadian dreamers in a city where dreams often die.
