Off the Rails
Running Time: 91min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Knight Made in MIA Feature Film Award
It’s the early 1970s in South Florida, not long after the “summer of love”: The Age of Aquarius, social growth, political awareness and unrest. Best friends Chris, Liam and Manny float happily through the youth-fueled counter culture. As lovable as they are inept, the three friends decide to open their own bar without any knowledge or experience, and the good times mix with sheer folly.
Off the Rails is a spirited and energetic comedy tinged with the warm afterglow of nostalgia, and easily one of the most feel-good movies in this year’s Festival.
