Movie Review: Riding the Bullet (2004)
Synopsis: A University of Maine student attempts to kill himself in 1969. Shortly after recovering, he learns his mother has suffered a stroke and he decides to skip a concert in Toronto and, instead, starts hitchhiking home so he can see her in the hospital. Along the way, he encounters a number of strange people on the highway and, ultimately, is forced to make a decision about whether his mother should die or if he is willing to die instead.
