Winner of the coveted Grand Jury Award at South by Southwest in 2018, this is a genuinely innovative, startlingly confident feature debut that balances affecting drama with brutal comedy, both of which come from a deep and complicated place. 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, 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 remarkable tragicomedy that digs deep into the spiritual and economic crises of America’s heartland and will have you both laughing and thinking right from its unforgettable, single shot 12-minute opening scene.
