Four men with little in common, other than their attendance of an alcohol rehabilitation course, bond over their love of booze at a nearby pub between sessions. Between pints and bouts of delusion and depression, three of the men hatch a plan to get money out of the fourth - a mansion-dwelling millionaire played by the great Hywel Bennett (Endless Night) in his final feature-film role. A darkly comic satire on male fragility, Chris Cooke's One for the Road is one of the great, unsung British films of the twenty-first century. Made in Nottingham using early digital cameras - utilising a beer-soaked, cigarette-stained palette - it avoids the clich�s associated with British cinema and embraces the do-anything nature of its chosen format to become its own, distinct work. The film also showcases a fine ensemble of acting talent in not only Bennett, but also Rupert Procter, Greg Chisholm, Mark Devenport, Micaiah Dring and Johann Myers.
