Director Leslie McCleave
Starring Ebon Moss-Bachrach, James Urbaniak, Peter Appel, Catherine Kellner
Ex-lovers set out on an ill-fated road trip when Margaret (Catherine Kellner), a freelance photographer, gets her first big assignment to document toxic waste sites along the U.S.-Canadian border. Jay (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), her unemployed ex-boyfriend, with his eye on reconciliation, is along for the ride. But failed romance soon becomes the least of their problems in this ecologically-minded thriller as the trip eerily begins to circle in on itself. Winner of the Outstanding Performance Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival for the lead actors, and Best Original Score for composer Chris Brokaw at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. ROAD is the first feature by writer/director Leslie McCleave, whose short films include award-winning BLIXA BARGELD STOLE MY COWBOY BOOTS (starring Michael Imperioli), AVENUE X (Best Short Film Award at Sundance, SXSW, San Francisco and Locarno Film Festivals), and MEETING MARTY (commissioned by Sundance Channel).
