Freeway (1996)

We screened this great little movie this weekend. I selected it for our Blockbuster queue because of the cast, but we didn’t realize quite what we were in for. One critic described it as one foot in the grind house and one foot in the art house cinema.

Its crude, profane, funny, bloody, and every actor in it plays it at 150% dead serious. The cast includes Amanda Plummer, Brooke Shields, Dan Hedaya, and Keifer Sutherland. But Reese Witherspoon owns this movie, playing the blunt talking, tough as nails, white trashy underclass runaway. Did I say blunt talking? sheesh, this girl does not know how to spell “restraint” — literally. Read some reviews. Check it out if you like this sort of thing.
