Movie Info

When Margaret (Catherine Kellner) gets a job photographing toxic waste sites for the government, she asks her ex-boyfriend Jay (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) to come along. Jay accepts her invitation on this unusual road trip -- but learns to his disappointment that Margaret is engaged. Their journey gets considerably odder as the former couple keep getting lost in strange territory, face off with inhospitable locals and discover that their gas level hasn't changed one bit during the whole trip.

Critic Reviews for Road

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3)

  • Writer-director Leslie McCleave knows how to stir the pot, dropping various weird or menacing characters in the couple's path, but by the end of the movie's 92 minutes it still isn't soup yet.

    November 16, 2006 | Full Review…
  • What begins as a faintly unsettling Twilight Zone riff, soon becomes deadly with repetition and a lack of ideas.

  • McCleave, making her feature debut, shows skill and emotion.

    November 16, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • It's a less "entertaining" movie, but a much more life-affirming one.

    March 21, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Writer-director Leslie McCleave offers no explanation beyond juxtaposing sour lake beds and radioactive vats with the tension between the former lovers. The environment, with upstate New York standing in for Ontario, rarely looks this distasteful.
