Trucker: Directed by James Mottern. With Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Fillion, Benjamin Bratt, Joey Lauren Adams. A trucker, leading a life free of depth and on the way to nowhere, is forced to make a decision about her aggressive loner 11-year-old son whom she openly deserted ten years previously.

“Iu0026#39;m closer to Thobias on this one. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSure, itu0026#39;s an easy watch, quick and stylish to a fault, and certainly raises highly pertinent questions about Danish (or any OECD) society. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut I found that the script didnu0026#39;t take anywhere near enough effort to make it plausible. So, here we have this highly integrated professional, Dr Jekyll, with a great marriage. Heu0026#39;s consciously walked away from his culture and ethnicity, goes out of his way to abuse his poor old dad for being mentally stuck in Iraq.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThen, on behalf of a loser brother he doesnu0026#39;t even like, he suddenly turns into Mr Hyde on steroids? The only partial explanation weu0026#39;re offered is guilt, but it didnu0026#39;t wash for me.”
