Thunder Road (M)

Thunder Road movie poster

A series of snapshots from Jim’s life, exploring his experience on the police force - he’s a decorated officer who isn’t shy about using his gun and often seems to be starring in some “Keystone” version of “Cops” - and also his testy encounters with his sneering estranged wife, his distraught sister, his highly supportive African-American police partner, and his daughter’s teacher, who explains to him that Crystal is a problem child, always acting out, a warning that Jim can’t take in because it would get in the way of his everything-is-fine posture.
