About the Movie
Filmed entirely inside a moving car over three days, Fare is a dramatic thriller about a cab driver and an unexpected passenger. Blurring the lines of tone and genre, Fare explores the darkest depths of love, betrayal and the fight for a committed relationship. Ride-share cab driver Eric begins his day like any other, responding to the many fares who hail him from their smartphones throughout the city. Hiding his depression due to a marriage that has long since grown cold, Eric entertains small talk and discusses his “real job” of real estate. He even finds his own notions of love and marriage challenged by one fare in particular – a foreign man whose elusive ramblings seem to light the fire of Eric’s own self-reflection. When Eric’s day turns to night and he takes the evening’s last fare, Eric finds himself face to face with the source of his troubles. Eric’s unsuspecting passenger is a man named Patrick who doesn’t know this cab driver from any other. But when Eric recognizes Patrick as the man who is secretly sleeping with his wife, a series of events are set in motion which threaten the lives of everyone who sets foot inside the car.
Best indie I've seen in a decade!!!
I was blown away when I saw Fare at its debut in Newport Beach film festival. The concept was brilliantly executed and the acting was nuanced and stellar on all fronts! Fresh faces and wonderful direction. When I heard the film was shot in three days I was literally blown away:) I could watch this film over and over and pick up something new with every viewing. Please make a sequel and a prequel! Lol! The fare was more than worth it for this ride! Kudos to the whole cast and crew! This film is now in my top five indie films of all time:)
Without giving too much away, wonderfully paced and beautifully executed, "Fare" takes the audience on a thrilling journey supported by chilling performances from the cast. Torrey, Drew, Aducci and Dortch bring the suspense to life. I cannot stop watching.
Last week, my wife I had the opportunity to see "Fare" when it was screened at the Beaufort Film Festival. We really enjoyed it: it is edgy and gritty and shot beautifully, and the acting (which was excellent) exceeded by a fair margin what you usually get in an indie film. Even setting aside the fact that it was filmed over the space of a weekend and that the budget was probably less than what many people spend on a new car, this movie succeeds by telling a compelling story and by being visually stimulating. 99% of the movie takes place inside of a car, which manages to never feel gimmicky, confined or dull. "Fare" could have become a simple moral or personal tale, heavy on dialog, and yet it manages to throw in a twist in the end, making this more of a thriller that doubles down on the thrill in the end. You will find yourself asking,"What is going to happen next?" and then, "What just happened?" (this is a good thing). The language and the frankness of the dialog as the movie progresses gets harsher and harsher, so if you are sensitive to that sort of thing, be warned. But it is a deeply honest look at reality, particularly when it comes to the brokeness of this world and of relationships between men and women and husbands and wives. And it will make you think.
