From legendary American director Monte Hellman (Two-Lane Blacktop, The Shooting and executive producer of Reservoir Dogs) comes his first directed film in over two decades and some critics are calling it a “ certifiable masterpiece” and have garnered praise from Venice and SXSW film festivals.
There’s a murky tenuous balance between reality and fiction; particularly when it involves a beautiful young woman, murder, a powerful politico, a missing fortune and suicide.
A passionate filmmaker (Tygh Runyan), creating a film based upon a true crime, casts an unknown mysterious young woman (Shannyn Sossamon) bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. He finds himself unsuspectingly drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, obsessed with the woman, the crime, her possibly notorious past and the disturbing complexity between art and truth.
From the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina to Verona, Rome and London, new truths revealed and clues to other crimes and passions, darker and even more complex are uncovered as Road to Nowhere takes you places you’ve never been. – Synopsis provided by Monterey Media.
