"Sometimes you have to say goodbye to the things you know and hello to the things you don't!" Boon Hogganbeck.
Itchy feet, grand ideas and the freedom of the open road inspire Boon Hogganbeck (Steve McQueen, The Great Escape) to 'borrow' his boss's 1905 Winton Flyer automobile and take work colleague Ned McCaslin (Oscar® nominee Rupert Crosse*) on a road trip to Memphis for a bit of fun and a whole load of mischief. Along for the ride is 12 year-old Lucius (Mitch Vogel), destined to take it all in and keep check on his grandfather's beloved automobile. Adventure bound, the trio of 'reivers' - more commonly known as thieves - trick, con and charm their way to their destination and beyond, gambling everything and playing everyone all in the name of fun.
Based on a novel by William Faulkner (The Long, Hot Summer) and directed by Oscar® nominated filmmaker Mark Rydell** (On Golden Pond, The Rose), The Reivers is a playfully poignant, nostalgic coming-of-age drama.
