On The Road

Little Miss Sunshine
This American film starring Toni Collette and Steve Carell is about a dysfunctional family on a chaotic cross-country trip in their Volkswagen minivan. En-route from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Redondo Beach, California with Grandpa, mum, dad and the kids!
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
If this crazy Australian comedy-drama about two drag queen performers and a transgender woman on a road trip across the Australian desert doesn’t sound exotic enough, wait until you watch them performing their unique style of cabaret.
If, like us, you love Bill Murray, this French-American comedy-drama is for you. The movie tells the story of a heartbroken man embarking on a cross-country journey to find his 19-year-old son he just learnt of, who has been looking for him.
Thelma & Louise
This All-American film tells the story of two best friends and their run from the police on a road trip across a fictional route between Arkansas and the Grand Canyon, which is full of action and drama. Don’t miss this cult film where women – for once – hold the wheel!
An American comedy-drama that follows the road trip of two very different brothers on a road trip, one kidnapped by the other, from Cincinnati, Ohio to Los Angeles. The performance of the two stars – that is, Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman – is one of the best moments of 20th century cinema.
