At his mother’s funeral, police officer Jim Arnaud gives an awkward speech about her, and how she would sing the Bruce Springsteen song “Thunder Road” to him. Jim attempts to dance to the song, but his CD player malfunctions and he stumbles away in tears.

MUBI's take

Director Jim Cummings turns the figure of the virile cop upside down to present his evocative debut film: an indie portrait of masculinity in crisis through the prism of grief and parenthood. At once touching and unpredictable, Thunder Road is a welcome oddity that does not shy away from sentiment.
