★★★★★ "A remarkable debut... miraculous" - Daily Telegraph
Released exclusively in cinemas on July 29, Hit the Road won Best Film at last year's London Film Festival and has been a huge hit on the festival circuit since then, receiving rave reviews along the way!
Driving across endless miles of rugged landscape, a family navigates a long road trip alongside a range of conflicting emotions. Dad’s got a broken leg and a mood to match, whilst Mum fusses over her two children and their pet dog. And when he’s not drawing on the car windows, their energetic youngest son couldn’t be louder as he sings along to the car radio whilst his elder brother tries to concentrate on the road ahead. As the journey twists and turns and their destination draws ever closer, the chaotic claustrophobia in the car grows, as does the love and affection they have for each other. Accompanied by a brilliant soundtrack, Panah Panahi’s thrilling debut feature is a treasure; tender, quirky and laugh-out-loud funny. Get ready to take an unmissable journey along the dusty road of life.
