In ROAD, Margaret (Catherine Kellner), a freelance photographer on her first big job, uses the latest government-supplied technology to survey environmental disaster areas. Jay(Ebon Moss-Bachrach), her unemployed ex-boyfriend is along for the ride. The trip does not go exactly as planned and through their own moral lapses, the act of a fickle God or maybe just a paranoid delusion " the couple are forced to confront their relationships to the environment, the world at large and each other. -- © Ghost Robot Productions

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer-director Leslie McCleave knows how to stir the pot, dropping various weird or menacing characters in the couple's path, but by the end of the movie's 92 minutes it still isn't soup yet."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's a less "entertaining" movie, but a much more life-affirming one."
‑ Steven Snyder, Zertinet Movies
"What begins as a faintly unsettling Twilight Zone riff, soon becomes deadly with repetition and a lack of ideas."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Writer-director Leslie McCleave offers no explanation beyond juxtaposing sour lake beds and radioactive vats with the tension between the former lovers. The environment, with upstate New York standing in for Ontario, rarely looks this distasteful."
‑ Michele Kenner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"McCleave, making her feature debut, shows skill and emotion."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
