Left Lane Ends

Australia, 2000 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Sofya Gollan

Nothing can help Danny sleep. Working as a toll-way attendant, his life is dominated by the mindless ritual of night shift, paid sex and insomnia— until an old school friend looks him up. The urban landscape of tollways and convenience stores evokes a strong sense of mood in this wry look at a life getting back on the rails.
