Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz direct Zack Gottsagen, Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson in this road movie where a down syndrome wrestling fan and a down on his luck fisherman go on the run in North Carolina.
A sweet and low stakes riff on Rain Man and Midnight Run. The leads all give far better performances than you’d expect, respective genetic conditions and awful back catalogues withstanding. Two thirds of the cast spend nearly the entire runtime tops off… sadly Johnson is the fully clothed spoilsport! Doesn’t really reinvent the wheel but a pleasant watch… even with some lurching, not entirely necessary, swings into brutality.
