The premise is light-hearted and absurd but still grounded in the human need for connection … And the actors are so charismatic [that] we come to love these two eccentric characters and their relationship.”

Alex Heeney, Seventh Row

There’s anxiety, and then there’s anxiety à la Louise! In this lively, absurdist comedy, Louise, who is just coming out of a painful separation and a run of bad luck, finally gives up at the sight of a parking ticket. After a desperate hunt to find a new spot, she parks the car and swings open the door, but discovers she cannot get out. With no physical barrier confining her, she comes to the stark and deeply unsettling realization that the only thing preventing her from leaving the car is herself! Panicked and confused, she is jolted out of her distracted state by a stranger suddenly breaking into her car. With Louise stuck and the carjacker desperate to get to the south coast of France, the two decide to surrender to this bizarre fate and embark on an unexpected road trip—and a just as unexpected (and unlikely) friendship. Buckle up.
