Closing film

Jon is failing as a novelist, failing to pay the rent and has recently failed his one true love, Suzie. After washing up on a mate’s couch, he summons his blind optimism and sets off in a clapped-out old Holden to find Suzie. When that plan breaks down too, Jon’s left hitchhiking with nothing to his name. A zippy young man, Luke, takes pity and offers him a lift. The car he’s in (a new MINI Cooper S) appears to be stolen, and after escaping from a motorcycle cop, it’s clear Luke is not about to give it back. So begins an epic Kiwi road trip with Jon, a charming failure in almost all pursuits, Luke, an incredible driver escaping from his past in a stolen MINI, and Keira, a passionate vegan activist out to change the world.
