Full disclosure, I’ll watch just about anything Ethan Hawke does so it’s pretty exciting when he has a new movie surface. He’s without question one of the busiest actors in the business and he always seems to have several new projects in the works. His latest is the oddly titled “Adopt a Highway”.
The film premiered at South by Southwest and is the directorial debut for Logan Marshall-Green (he also wrote the screenplay). The trailer shows Hawke homeless after being released from prison. Seemingly hopeless and depressed he finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster who inspires him to take heart and press on. It’s easy to be skeptical, but with Hawke and a solid first trailer I’m onboard.
“Adopt a Highway” is set to hit theaters November 1st (limited I’m sure). Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
