Synopsis

Already tipped as one of America’s emerging filmmakers to watch, with comparisons drawn to the work of Judd Apatow, Matthew Bissonnette’s (WHO LOVES THE SUN) PASSENGER SIDE is a sharp, insightful black comedy, set on a road trip through the darker side of Los Angeles County and received high praise upon its time on the festival circuit, most notably at London, L.A. and Toronto.

Featuring intelligent, funny and affecting performances from Adam Scott (Knocked-up, The Aviator), Joel Bissonnette (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fight Club) and set to an exceptional indie rock soundtrack which includes Leonard Cohen, D.O.A, Evan Dando and Silverjews, PASSENGER SIDE examines the estranged relationship of two brothers and the unusual, complex bonds that are created when opposites are bound together by unexpected circumstances.
