One Wrong Turn Deserves Another
Affluent Wall Street lawyer Gavin Banek (Ben Affleck) and recovering alcoholic Doyle Gipson (Samuel L. Jackson) are both on their way to vital court hearings when they get involved in a fender bender accident with each other on New York's FDR Drive. In a rush, Banek leaves the scene without doing things by the book, but he leaves behind an important document. Stranded, Gipson is late for a custody hearing, and so begins a cruel game of one-upmanship between the men. Changing Lanes is an engrossing, intelligently scripted urban drama.
- " Changing Lanes" asks how far we'd go not to lose what's ours, but it's a morality play with hope for dtente rather than any destructive force. Gavin and Doyle are two severely flawed men whose best intentions are knocked about by their worst impulses. " – Nick Rogers
- " One of the most impressive movies of the year; taut and compelling. " – Olly Richards
- " Dog-eat-dog urban drama has great script, direction – and unexpectedly smart performances from Affleck and Jackson. " – James Rocchi
