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

The Road Within: A cheering tale about Abreaction.
26 July 2015 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

This movie is a cheering (and serious) tale about complicated people sharing a complicated trip to the ocean. The story rolls with a wonderful narrative balance and the result is very entertaining. At the end I wondered who wrote and directed it and found out it was another astonishing female writer/director of these latter Movie years (Gren Wells).

Then I asked myself (probably influenced by the Psychoanalytical atmosphere of the movie) why I rated it 8 and not 10. And it was simply because it was too easy for me (as it probably will be for you) to see what was going to come.

A small lack of originality however does not affect the overall result, that remains really good. Moreover the movie offers the chance to put a new word in our vocabulary: Abreaction. Maybe you never heard it before but it's easy to figure out its meaning: it's what the story is about.
