Critics often have a difficult time connecting director David Gordon Green’s more comedic efforts (e.g., Pineapple Express) and his more dramatic fare (e.g., George Washington). This remake of an Icelandic film might be the bridge that allows those critics to see the broad connections between both camps. Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch are two road-crew workers, philosophical in their own ways, who work alone yet together in the back country during the summer of 1988. With no cell phones, they remain deeply isolated and yet cannot escape each other. Tensions rise and fall with their relationship’s breaks and bends, resulting in what one could consider both the loosest and most direct film adaptation of Waiting for Godot.
