Trucker

Thursday 8th April 2010

Every now and then a film which has garnered huge critical acclaim will somehow, inexplicably and undeservedly, slip under the radar as far as the public is concerned, only to be rediscovered later by discerning movie fans searching for those overlooked cinematic gems. One such film is writer-director James Mottern's affecting, independent debut feature, Trucker, released on DVD (£12.99) by High Fliers Films on 12th July 2010.

Every now and then a film which has garnered huge critical acclaim will somehow, inexplicably and undeservedly, slip under the radar as far as the public is concerned, only to be rediscovered later by discerning movie fans searching for those overlooked cinematic gems. One such film is writer-director James Mottern's affecting, independent debut feature, Trucker, released on DVD (£12.99) by High Fliers Films on 12th July 2010, starring Michelle Monaghan (The Heartbreak Kid; Gone Baby Gone; Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) in a "star making performance" (Hollywood Reporter) that Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times claimed, "clearly deserves an Oscar nomination.

" Winner of numerous prestigious international film awards in 2009, including the Jury Prize at Fort Collins TriMedia Festival, the Jury Award and Spirit of the Independent Award at Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, and the San Diego Film Critics Society Award for Best Actress (Michelle Monaghan), Trucker co-stars Nathan Fillion (Desperate Housewives), Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order), Jimmy Bennett (Shorts; Orphan; Star Trek) and Joey Lauren Adams (The Break-Up) in a "haunting tale of motherhood lost and found" (LA Times). Diane Ford (Michelle Monaghan), a vivacious and successful independent truck driver, leads a carefree life of long-haul trucking, one-night stands and all-night drinking.

That is until the evening her estranged 11-year-old son, Peter (Jimmy Bennett), shows up at her door. Peter hasn't seen his mother since he was a baby and wants Diane as little as she wants him. But with Peter's father and Diane's ex, Len (Benjamin Bratt), terminally ill in hospital, it looks like they are stuck with each other, at least for a while.

Burdened with this new responsibility and seeing the life of freedom she's fought long and hard for jeopardized, Diane steps reluctantly into her past and takes a sidelong look at a future that no longer promises to be as simple or straightforward as she had once believed. A heartfelt and moving story of a mother and son learning to accept - and possibly love - each other in spite of the past, Trucker "sets out on a difficult and tricky path and doesn't put a thing wrong" (Roger Ebert).
