Backseat

Two lifelong friends from NYC take to the road on a three-day road trip to Montreal wishing to meet their favorite actor of all-time; Donald Sutherland. Yet things are not as simple and as clean-cut as they seem, as in their dashboard is a bag of cocaine that needs to make it to a drop-point in time and their only point of contact is a wacko who only communicates via instant messaging...

Sometimes described as a 'Sideways' for 30-somethings, Backseat quite a different experience from that male-camaraderie flick.  A three-day road trip to Montreal to hook up with movie idol Donald Sutherland is what sets Ben (Rob Bogue) a hopeless romantic sans employment, and the wishful Colton (Josh Alexander- who also wrote part of the script) who happens to be an aspiring actor, to have faith in their crazed escapade with unpredictable results.

Will these two 30-somethings get to meet their idol Sutherland, and what mysterious message, if any, may he carry for Colton and his acting future? And with all the other quirks and disasters waiting to happen, what will become of these two buddies with a simple dream?
