The Long Dumb Road

About

Follow this film on GoWatchIt

Not far down the highway from his childhood home in Texas, Nathan’s car breaks down on the drive to his freshman year of art school in Los Angeles. Richard, a local mechanic, agrees to fix the car as long as Nathan helps Richard escape his bastard of a boss. On the way out of town, Richard pounds a road beer or three, sparks a joint, and begins to question why young Nathan is lacking a clear philosophy about the rest of his life. As they venture on, these two strangers will battle through bar fights, heartache, and many more unfortunate detours to make it to their next destinations in life.

Director Hannah Fidell (A Teacher, 2013 Sundance Film Festival) returns to Park City—this time co-writing with another Festival alum, Carson Mell. Fidell captures charming lead performances by Tony Revolori (Dope, 2015 Sundance Film Festival) and Jason Mantzoukas (Sleeping with Other People, 2015 Sundance Film Festival) for an unlikely buddy comedy that traverses the desert plains of America in search of the occasionally ridiculous—but very necessary—needs of male companionship.
