First Look: Reservation Road

After outlining the differences between Reservation Road and Revolutionary Road yesterday, you should be all set and ready to watch this trailer for the one of the road-themed movies coming out this fall: Reservation Road. Starring Mark Ruffalo, Joaquin Phoenix, Mira Sorvino and Jennifer Connolly, Reservation Road is a quiet thriller set in suburban Connecticut.

After his son is killed by a hit-and-run accident, Ethan (Phoenix) goes on a manhunt to find the person who was behind the wheel. Little does he know that the person he's sniffing out lives in the same town and has a young son himself. Trying to come to terms with the incident, Dwight (Ruffalo) falls down a spiral of guilt while Ethan gets closer and closer to sniffing out his son's killer.

The book reads like a creepy, heart-wrenching film, so it should be fairly simple to adapt for screen, though the trailer leaves much to be desired. The movie opens October 19, so to watch the preview,

Thanks Buzz Sugar, I think I will read the book first. The story looks really good, and they have edited some important parts when making the book into the movie.

mwmsjuly19 — That's a good point. I changed to "killer" in the post per your clarification. It wasn't premeditated, though the driver does zoom away after the fact. Very sad story.

Not sure I'll see this one. Maybe. But I would say the guy is the son's "killer" rather than his "murderer." Murder means he meant to do it. This looks like a horrible accident, followed by horrible judgment...

ccsugar — The book is really good. It's just a really well-told story. I definitely recommend reading it before the movie comes out!
