Thunder Road

Thunder Road follows a Texan police officer who loses his mother, custody of his daughter, and eventually his job. Inspired by one of the greatest songs ever written, we see officer Jim Arnaud apply this lullaby of his mother's to his life during his ongoing and often hilarious nervous breakdown.

  • Director: Jim Cummings
  • Runtime: 1 hour 32 minutes
  • Genre: Drama, Comedy

“The film lives and dies on Cummings’ performance, and it’s quite marvelous he was able to pull off so much with his acting while manning so many duties behind the camera. All at once, he’s able to load the grief and tumult of his lot and his decisions into a largely-comedic performance. It’s like of the lead character from “Manchester By the Sea” was played by a slightly more-reserved Jim Carrey.”
