"From the first jokey moments of 'Hit the Road' until its heartbreaking end you will not want to be anywhere else." — New York Times A striking feature debut from Panah Panahi, son and collaborator of Iranian master Jafar Panahi, Hit the Road charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving. A family of four — two middle-aged parents and their sons, one a taciturn adult, the other an ebullient six-year-old — drive across the Iranian countryside. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past, grapple with fears of the unknown, and fuss over their sick dog. Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the furtive purpose for their journey. The result is a humanist drama that offers an authentic, raw, and deeply sincere observation of an Iranian family preparing to part with one of their own.
