Winner of the coveted Grand Jury Award at South by Southwest in 2018, Thunder Road is a genuinely innovative, startlingly confident feature debut which balances affecting drama with brutal comedy, both of which come from a deep and complicated place.
Police officer Jim Arnaud is undergoing a personal meltdown following his divorce and the death of his mother. An often ridiculous creation he must navigate grief, single fatherhood to his young daughter Crystal and stresses at work not to mention angry and profoundly self-pity.
Raw, uncomfortable and original, Thunder Road is a remarkable tragicomedy that digs deep into the spiritual and economic crises of Americas heartland and will have you both laughing and thinking right from its unforgettable, single shot 12-minute opening scene.
