He Went That Way

Spotlight Narrative

Comedy, Thriller

Zachary Quinto and Jacob Elordi star in this wicked take on the buddy road trip. In 1964 along Route 66, a 19-year-old serial killer Bobby (Elordi) finds himself needing a ride, but is devoid of options. His luck soon changes when he’s picked up by a celebrity animal handler, Jim (Quinto), who’s trekking along the great American highway with priceless cargo in tow: his chimpanzee, Spanky — an American TV darling. Bobby just wants to make it to his destination, while Jim and Spanky have goals of their own. As stress between them rises and their fiery personalities combust, the road only becomes more treacherous the farther they go.  


This film is as much about a found family as it is a volatile crime drama centered on a serial killer and his captives on the road. Quinto and Elordi draw the audience in with their captivating chemistry as both performances bring out stark revelations about Jim and Bobby, and the difficulty of walking with kindness while navigating a brutal world.––Casey Baron
