A good King adaptation
on 23 July 2017
Based in 1969 a young guy has to give up his John Lennon ticket to go and see his mother played by Barbara Hershey who is ill in hospital after suffering a stroke. He decides to hitch hike. Along the way he suffers hallucinations and then finally gets picked up by a very menacing David Arquette. Movie works because of the layers of characterization and flashbacks which give this a complete plot.
Acting is good and Mick Garris who can be hit or miss is behind the lens. Movie lends itself to a heavy handed atmosphere and catches 'the road' perfectly. Stephen King personally gave the movie his seal of approval. However people that don't like King's projects probably should stay well away, don't worry they don't know what their missing.
