Passenger Side - Official Trailer


“This film is bloody lovely...A joy from start to finish...The faded hope of LA is perfectly captured, as is a depth of sibling love and resentment, with excellent performances, big laughs and emotional truth." - Empire
“Canada’s Top Ten” - The Toronto international Film Festival
A brilliant film – smart, funny, a little disturbing and utterly original.” - Montreal Gazette
“4 Stars: It’s not like Sideways; it’s a lot better in fact.” - The National Post
“…it’s the warmth, the entirely plausible relationship between the brothers, the sparky, but never-overwritten back-and-forth between them, and the truthful, universal emotion of the whole thing that makes this a severely overlooked gem." - The Playlist

SYNOPSIS

On the morning of his thirty seventh birthday Michael Brown (ADAM SCOTT) receives a telephone call from this estranged brother Tobey (JOEL BISSONNETTE), which sends the two off on a day-long odyssey across a wild and weird Los Angeles in search of Tobey’s “reason for living.” Behind the wheel of a beat up old BMW, fuelled by hilarious banter and a killer soundtrack (WILCO, LEONARD COHEN, EVAN DANDO, etc.), the brothers’ search leads them through a bizarre, beautiful land filled with surprising, comical characters to a very unexpected and magical destination.

Passenger Side has played over 20 festivals, including: Los Angeles Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival ("Canada's Top Ten"), Edmonton International Film Festival (Winner: Best Canadian Film), Starz Denver Film Festival, Whistler Film Festival, CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival (New York).

Passenger Side was released theatrically and has sold to Strand Releasing in the US and to IFC Films internationally.
