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.
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.
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.
Fresh: Funnier and more intelligent than there are any grounds to hope for: an entertaining, wry tour of LA's scuzzier sights.
I enjoy this movie I really liked it.
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.
