AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 720
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The movie looks like TV from beginning to end, and accentuates the other major compromise of its meager budget.
New York Daily News
Dec 5, 2003
Rating: 4/5 -- Sweet, suspenseful, funny, poignant -- and adult. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Dec 19, 2003
A solid character piece that deftly probes the complicity of both sides in a morally dubious relationship.
Variety
Dec 23, 2003
Rating: 2/4 -- The film's somewhat light-hearted tone is wholly inappropriate in what is, in essence, a story of sexual predators. Full Review
Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Mar 19, 2004
Rating: B -- An almost constantly surprising coming-of-age film with a dark twist that manages to take the high road with what is well-exploited material. Full Review

...[A] small, finely wrought drama...

Product Description:

Fed up with her life in New Hampshire, 18-year-old Alice (Emily Grace) gets in her car and heads for Florida to pursue her dreams of being a marine biologist and join a friend who is in college there. But she gets sidetracked after stopping at a rest stop where, according to middle-aged Good Samaritans Sandra (Judith Ivey) and Bill (Bill Raymond), someone apparently punctured her tire. Bill changes the tire for her, and the couple offers to let her follow them on the road to prevent further danger--but after her engine burns out completely several miles later, she has no choice but to hitch a southbound ride with her newfound guardians. Their unusual kindness becomes increasingly suspect, though, when she discovers that Sandra is a truck stop prostitute and Bill is her pimp. Once her initial shock dissipates, though, shy Alice learns that by following Sandra's lead, she can make as much money in a few minutes as she's used to making in a week.

With a grainy, digital-video look, A. Dean Bell's frank and surprising road movie is likely to win over all but the least adventurous or most jaded viewer. Ivey is superb and Grace--in a fine debut performance--expertly embodies wide-eyed naiveté. A well-chosen soundtrack enhances the visuals.
