Two guys spend the summer of 1988 in near isolation, wandering a burned-out road together, ostensibly repairing it but more or less trying to find their own way home. Paul Rudd is tightly wound, while Emile Hirsch is shabbier and less reliable. The inspiration is as much Waiting for Godot as The Odd Couple, says director David Gordon Green. ”Theater of the absurd influences the tone,” he says. ”There is a strange surreal quality, and even a ghost story in the movie.” You never know what you’ll find on a desolate road.
