Movie Info

In this gentle coming-of-age drama, an adult man reflects nostalgically on his youth, when he spent countless hours working at his father's garage and buddied around with a fast friend. Eighteen-year-old Matt was intelligent, sweet-natured, and a recent high school graduate, his pal Schultz three years older, a high school dropout, and a laborer at his abusive father's construction business. Just as Matt longed with great passion and drive to leave the confines of his hometown and realize his passion and driving force, Schultz wanted to do everything in his power to simply escape from the domineering and repressive shadow of his father. Matt realized that the decision to leave the garage would put his dad in dire straits, which greatly complicated his decision. Then an unforeseen tragedy changed everything.

Audience Reviews for The Garage


Nearly completely ignored (not rebuked) by the critics, the festival favorite The Garage touches all of the awkward-age-and-tough-decisions bases without lingering in cliches.
