“An Irresistible Iranian Road-Movie Debut” —Variety

Panah Panahi, the son of master Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi, makes a striking feature debut with this charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving comic drama. Hit the Road follows a family of four as they drive across the countryside, bonding over memories, grappling with the unknown, and fussing over their sick dog.
