A young police officer’s escalating struggles reach a breaking point in this grim yet awkwardly endearing character study.
Officer Jim Arnaud’s eulogy at his mother’s funeral does not go as planned. Struggling to stay focused as his emotions take over, the tongue-tied 30-something launches into a free-wheeling diatribe of confessional digressions, not helped by the fact that he cannot seem to get his mother’s favourite Bruce Springsteen song to play on his daughter’s pink stereo.
Writer, director and star Jim Cummings gives a jaw-dropping, tour-de-force performance as police officer Jim Arnaud. Based on a short film of the same name, THUNDER ROAD is already taking the festival scene by storm and we're very excited to have it here at Tyneside.
