THE ROAD WITHIN
NAME OF FILM: THE ROAD WITHIN
DIRECTOR(S): Gren Wells
STARRING: Robert Sheehan, Zoë Kravitz, Dev Patel, Robert Patrick, Kyra Sedgwick
GENRE: Comedy Film
SYNOPSIS: Recalling John Hughes’ lighthearted yet meaningful teen comedies of the 80’s, Gren Wells’ entertaining dramedy about disorders and disorderly conduct follows a trio of teenage residents who escape their psychiatric behavioral clinic and head out on a road trip. Leading this talented acting ensemble, Robert Sheehan gives a remarkable and convincing performance capturing not only the physical tics and verbal outbursts of someone with Tourette’s Syndrome, but the emotional anguish as well. Zoë Kravitz balances a complex performance as the anorexic girl trying to maintain a tough confident exterior and Dev Patel highlights the humorous yet incredibly isolating side of OCD with impeccable comedic timing. Listed in the 2014 issue of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch, Gren Wells is off to a great start with her feature directing debut.
