About the Movie

Michael Brown’s birthday begins with a telephone call from his estranged, drug addicted brother Tobey. Tobey is totally unaware that it is his older brother’s birthday, but he is very aware that his car is broken, and he begs Michael to drive him on various apparently legitimate, vital errands. As the day wears on, it becomes clear that this drive will lead them to some very unexpected destinations.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Bissonnette achieves a hypnotic effect with Passenger Side. L.A. slides by in a daze, at once inviting and threatening. Michael and Tobey are just two Canadian dreamers in a city where dreams often die. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Simple and smart, Canadian director Matt Bissonnette's Passenger Side is what's known in theatre circles as a two-hander, a two-person play in which everything depends on dialogue and performance. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Here's one of those shuffling, slovenly American indies that can seem vain and inconsequential, or inviting and oddly profound, depending on the talent involved. – Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph (UK), Apr 4, 2011

Fresh: Funnier and more intelligent than there are any grounds to hope for: an entertaining, wry tour of LA's scuzzier sights. – Cath Clarke, Guardian, Mar 31, 2011

Great Movie!

I enjoy this movie I really liked it.

Well Acted

Small film about brothers, one a ex-junkie and the other a author, working through the past while on a day long road trip. The premise of the film is clear, but the way it is presented, and portrayed, feels too far fetched. The second act drags and the ending feels like a gimmick as do all of the side characters.
