Movie Info

After dropping out of his doctoral Philosophy program, the unconventional Frank (Laurence Fuller) begins to fall into a mundane lifestyle, made complete with a menial office job. After catching his girlfriend with his boss, his old best friend, Jack (Micha Parker), arrives in town and hastily arranges a rendezvous with a strange and beautiful lady of the night for his down-in-the-dumps pal. However, during the steamy encounter, they're viciously attacked, leaving the prostitute dead and Frank unconscious. After discovering his predicament, Jack convinces a drunk, panicked Frank to head up North, take a new job and, most importantly, bury the body. Thus, the duo embarks on a strange, dark and cerebral journey into the California Sierras, full of old friends, lost loves, eccentric in-laws, backwoods pimps, and a suspicious ex-Military Chaplain (Marshall R. Teague), all while seeking to discover who's responsible for the murder.

Critic Reviews for Road to the Well

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • Though a little meandering, Road to the Well has flavorful dialogue, and a sense of scope that's rare for a movie about betrayal and murder.

    February 7, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This backwoods story of death, defiance and deception is organically riveting and should be considered a terrorizing treasure as it will undoubtedly be hidden in the shadows of the more promoted and frivolous dramas with half the heart and havoc.

    March 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Has a good professional look.

    March 17, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Moody millennial noir channeling a dispossessed generation kicking in, emotionally favors a lockdown, been there done that gloomy, fractured despair. Though this twisted ride to nowhere and back, serves up intriguing and impressive detours along the way.

    March 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Treading a fine line between farce and analytical drama, director Jon Cvack steers the film past many potential pitfalls, producing something that, whilst not always successful, is certainly distinctive.

    March 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's no spark to Road To The Well's dialogue, little sense of threat to propel the narrative forward, and the dark humour isn't ever particularly funny.
