Just because your mother sang Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’ to you when you were little doesn’t mean you should perform an interpretive dance rendition of it at her funeral. And, as chronically self-absorbed police officer Jim Arnaud (Jim Cummings) discovers, your ex-wife could even use it as evidence against you to prevent you seeing your daughter.
Written and directed by Jim Cummings, Thunder Road follows Arnaud on a zany-yet-poignant journey through grief and divorce.
With a budget of just $200,000, mostly crowdfunded on Kickstarter, Thunder Road is the very definition of an independent film. It’s been a surprisingly successful and highly acclaimed one too, having already won a number of major prizes at film festivals around the world.
