The Short History of the Long Road ★★★ Hollywood 360 Radio Podcast

Next up: “The Long History of the Short Road” is the story of a teenage girl played by Sabrina Carpenter and her dad played by Steven Ogg. They live a rambling existence traveling in a vintage RV through Southwest America, when he suddenly dies, she’s left to fend for herself.

You may know of Sabrina Carpenter as she’s a Disney Channel star and pop singer, here she gives a contemplative and soulful performance. Similar in tone yet not as harsh as “Leave No Trace,” ‘Long Road’s’ Father-Daughter relationship based on backroads survival is a sweet story.
There are offers no judgments passed or easy ways out. This is a story of using your prior life experiences to get from point A to point B.

The Bottom-Line: I’m in 3 ½ stars out of 4. The film starts as a gentle father-daughter story and shifts gears towards a painful coming-of-age tale. Sabrina Carpenter carries the film superbly as she navigates her new life without her parents.
