Description: Stephen Grynberg wrote and directed this drama, an indie road movie about three strangers who meet at the New York funeral of a mutual friend. They set out for Montana to scatter his ashes. Henry's Southern girlfriend Samantha (Jacqueline McKenzie) is joined by Henry's childhood friend, bureaucratic Walter (Pruitt Taylor-Vince), and Henry's college pal Eric (Simon Baker-Denny). The trio uses postcards instead of a map as they head westward in a Kerouacian journey, narrated in voiceover by the dead Henry (Sam Robards). Along the way, Walter and Samantha become a twosome, and Eric gets involved with a roadside waitress. A former encyclopedia salesman (James Gammons) briefly rides with the group. After Eric and Samantha fight, Eric starts hitchhiking, but they reunite. In Missoula, there's a stopover to see Alex (Kathryne Erbe), Eric's former girlfriend, before they continue on to their destination. The title is a reference to the South Dakota town where the government once kept the M-10. Shown at the 1998 Hamptons Film Festival.~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide
