Six Hours from Cleveland

USA, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Jesse Peretz

A teenage girl and her father are driving to a town where her mother is now living, to ask her to come home with them. They spend the night in a small motel en route where the girl has a strange run-in with the night clerk. Cre­ating a disturbing sense of the girl's repressed emotional pain, the film deals with her powerlessness in the face of adult decisions.
