Storyline

Jane and Will are familiar faces on the Los Angeles club scene. They meet officially at drug rehab after Jane OD'ed and Will crashed her motorcycle while driving stoned. They hit it off immediately and escape the clinic to travel to Montana and find the bike from Easy Rider (1969). Different from most road movies in that no one gets murdered, and no vengeance is reaped. On the contrary, the characters let their pasts and memories lead them down the road to emotional self-destruction. In other words, there is no seductive emancipation here, just people with problems that won't go away with a rev of a motor. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

An undiscovered gem
19 May 2002 | by jjw8See all my reviews

It's amazing the way Hollywood squanders talent. Sherrie Rose and Melissa Behr have spent most of their careers doing exploitation and cheap TV shows. On their own they put out a movie like this. This is a very touching movie, a road picture with obvious debts to "Easy Rider" but also a lot to say about individual freedom and the choices made in life. This kind of movie was very prevalent in the 70's but is a lost art these days. And who paid attention to it? If not for an article in Femmes Fatales Magazine, I never would have heard of it. It's sad the treasure that goes unnoticed out there.
