MOVIE REVIEW

Hit and runs continue to be a disturbing facet of civilization, a polarizing incident that claims a victim and puts the other person on the wrong side of the law. It could happen to anyone; you come around a corner too fast, you drop something on the floor, you simply don't see what's ahead or who's stepping into the street. Suddenly, a pedestrian or driver is dead, and the inflicting party must make a decision: stop and help, or continue driving. It is here that society draws its line, and for good reason. But when a driver flees after hitting someone or something, society immediately assumes that person is a monster, someone who lacks a moral code or compassion. One would hope that upon hitting someone, the driver would stop, but many things must go shoot through the mind in a split second upon realizing what has happened. Panic, hysteria and fear override even the most innocent of people's rational instincts. Should society condone someone leaving a crime scene, even in a fit of panic? No. But does leaving a crime scene automatically mean that that person is an immoral monster? That's what Reservation Road explores. Full movie review »
