Thunder Road (9/10)

I really liked The Wolf of Snow Hollow and needed to check out Jim Cumming’s debut. This one is about a policeman whose world is falling apart after the death of his mother and his embarrassing breakdown/dance at her funeral. The story seamlessly toggles between comedy and heartbreaking drama. The laughs come from Jim’s inability to stop talking at the wrong moments. The final scene is a perfect bow on this lovely gift of a movie.
