The Long Home

Freshman photography student Nathan (Tony Revolori) is on a quest to find the real America. On "The Long Dumb Road" of director Hannah Fidell's title, his trek from Texas to Los Angeles, he pulls over to shoot shuttered movie theaters and American flags drooping over drive-thrus, the kind of cynical corporate salute a kid like him considers deep . He's too snobby to actually eat a fast-food burger, but when his purple minivan breaks down in Fort Stockton, the real America - or at least, an alcoholic mechanic (Jason Mantzoukas) drifting through it - takes the wheel of his trip, with Several disastrous detours and stretches of pleasant pointlessness.
