Thunder Road

A debut feature expanded from his award-winning 2016 short, Jim Cummings is Jim Arnaud, a policeman undergoing a personal meltdown following his divorce and the death of his mother. An often ridiculous creation - as he navigates grief, single fatherhood to his young daughter Crystal (Kendal Farr) and stresses at work. Often tense, angry and profoundly self-pitying, Cummings nevertheless elicits your support for Arnaud via superbly written dialogue and a shockingly vulnerable and authentic performance.

Raw, uncomfortable and original, Thunder Road is a tragi-comedy that digs deep into the spiritual and economic crises of America’s heartland from its unforgettable, single shot 12-minute opening scene.
