“Vincent (Robert Sheehan), a young man with Tourette’s Syndrome, just lost his mom. As his symptoms get worse, his dad (Robert Patrick), a frustrated politician, sends him to a behavioral clinic run by an unconventional doctor (Kyra Sedgwick). But Vincent made his mom a promise, and with the help of a rebellious anorexic (Zoë Kravitz) and his withdrawn OCD roommate (Dev Patel), the three embark on a life-changing race to the sea that includes car theft, shoplifting, fights, self-discovery, and maybe finding a new way to live.”
The Road Within is exactly what it sounds like it would be. It’s about finding your personal inner path, or your road. The story is based around 3 young characters whom each have their own different disability. The character in the lead role is Vincent (Played by Robert Sheehan). Vincent suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome and is having a very tough time dealing with not just his disability but with his mother’s death. He goes to a “behavioral clinic” to try and overcome his problems, and this is where he meets the other 2 important characters, Alex and Marie (Played by Dev Patel, and Zoe Kravitz). Alex suffering from OCD, and Marie from Anorexia. After stealing their doctor’s car, the three of them form a bond while on the road trip. I’m going to start right off the bat by saying that I absolutely love the cast. I have been a big fan of Robert Sheehan since he was on the show ‘Misfits’. I have also seen recent work from Dev Patel, and Zoe Kravitz, which were amazing. The story was touching, and the acting was wonderful. It has it’s comical moments, as well as it’s sad, and thoughtful ones. All of the actors did their research and did a phenomenal job of portraying their characters. The Picture and Audio quality were beautifully done in tandem. The movie ends sort of abruptly but after I gave myself some time to let everything sink in, I realized why everything was done that way that it was. It’s really refreshing to see young talent give such beautiful and dedicated performances. I highly recommend this movie.
