Storyline

The Road Within is about Vincent, a young man suffering from Tourette Syndrome. His mother dies so his estranged father, Robert, is forced to step in. However, Robert's running for political office and doesn't want his son on the campaign trail - so Robert puts Vincent in a clinic that's run by the unconventional Dr. Mia Rose. Once there, Vincent falls in love with an anorexic woman named Marie. Together, they steal Dr. Rose's car, and end up having to kidnap his OCD roommate, Alex, when he threatens to tell on them. With Robert and Dr. Rose in hot pursuit, Vincent, Marie and Alex go on a life changing road trip to deliver the ashes of his mother to the ocean. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When hot-wiring the car, he crosses the wires but the engine sound only starts after he strikes them together (as if sparking to light a fire) and continues multiple revolutions after the wires are no longer touching. In reality, the starter will only engage and revolve (thus the engine starting sound) while the wires are still in contact. See more »

Quotes

Vincent: This fucking sucks. Can't I get one fucking advantage out of this cocksucking illness? They only come when I don't want them and only comes in the worst motherfucking moments.

Where has this been?!?!
22 December 2015 | by nehaap7See all my reviews

I thought this movie was absolutely remarkable. I was scrolling through Netflix for a fun movie with a little bit of drama and I came across this one. I wasn't completely intrigued by the short summary but gave it a shot because (as all Netflix viewers are) I was tired of scrolling. Little did I know, I would fall in love with the movie. This movie made me fall in love with the characters, their hearts, and emotions. It also really truly opened my eyes about mental disorders in a way that I couldn't have imagined. It showed me what these people truly go through and how a little bit of support can change how they live in the world. It was a story of strength, realizing ones self and also understanding other's emotions as well as your own. It's about building new relationships and fixing past relationships with patience and proper guidance. It's truly a satisfying movie.

Even better, was that the acting was phenomenal by all 3 leads. It was stunning, and beautiful. Made me want to have a story like all 3 of them, and make friends they way they did.

Watch this movie if you want something different, but also warm and friendly. It's like a new genre that has yet to be recognized. It's phenomenal, and if you watch it you'll know why.
