Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line) stars as Vanessa in this twisted take on Little Red Riding Hood, spattered with dark humour and graphic violence.
After her drug addicted prostitute mother and child molester stepfather are arrested, Vanessa runs away to find her estranged grandmother. This is when Bob (Kiefer Sutherland, 24), a seemingly decent guy, offers Vanessa a lift. However Bob is in really a pedophilic serial killer searching for his next victim. When Vanessa realizes Bob is the I-5 killer, a frenzied confrontation follows and she shoots him three times. Miraculously Bob survives, is put back together minus a few pieces and proceeds to unleash his lust for revenge against Vanessa.
Buckle up as Freeway cuts a corrosive path to its haunting finale, taking you where other films fear to tread, and proving this is no fairytale
Move over, Pulp Fiction. Freeway is totally outrageous, over the top hilarious, yet it all somehow has the ring of either truth or understanding or both. The performance delivered by Reese Witherspoon was not only great, it was startlingly great and the best thing I've seen her do. Each turn in the story hit me like a slap in the face, each new character was like a gift, but Reese Witherspoon playing the queen of trailer park trash was done like a symphony. Fantastic!
