Along for the Ride

poster for Along for the Ride

Two estranged brothers are forced to take a surreal and heartfelt journey to understanding, when they pick up the body of their deceased father in Mexico. A father they haven’t seen in over 20 years.


...this first feature by a young Chicago born director named Bryan W. Simon is an astonishing thing to behold and ...nothing in this inventive and stubbornly offbeat little movie is predictable.

Bill Gallo, LA New Times

Bryan Simon knows how to make movies, and how to make them work. He shows a remarkably sure and resourceful hand for a feature debut and knows where he's going and gets there with skill and imagination.

Rick Moser, The Pioneer Press (Chicago Sun-Times Network)

Bryan W. Simon's compelling film is one of the ones to watch.

Fran Fried, New Haven Register

Along for the Ride is a triumph for independent cinema...serious, satisfying, and, in actuality, funny.

Daria Snadowsky , INsite Magazine

…fresh and compelling, nothing short of amazing.

Russell Smith, The Austin Chronicle
