Thunder Road (15) 90mins

Thunder Road follows Officer Arnaud on his journey to raise his young daughter as a love letter to his late Mom.

Police officer Jim Arnaud does his best to keep himself together as he greets arrivals at his mother’s funeral, responsible for organising it all with both his brother and sister absent. However the emotion of the day results in him acting out the lyrics to Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’, a song which his mother would sing to him as a child, with footage of his bizarre dance going viral throughout the local community. As well as attempting to cope with this grief, move past the embarrassment and handle the daily pressures of being a cop, Jim is also in the middle of divorce proceedings with his wife and is fighting for custody of their daughter.

Thunder Road is written, directed and also features a brilliant central performance from one-to-watch Jim Cummings.
