Cummings, who also wrote and directed the film, has delivered a remarkable tragicomic performance in the lead.

Driven by Cummings' transfixingly vulnerable performance, the movie not only justifies returning to the source: Shockingly, it does so without even using the device that seemed key to the short's success.

It walks so many fine lines between comedy and drama that the balancing act is exhilarating to watch.

Thunder Road lands on a tragic development, but upends it with a single teary-eyed moment that hints - with no real evidence - that better things may be around the corner.
