It’s not the destination, but the getting there; the journey, that is often the most important part of any road trip. In the case of director Hernando Bansuelo's A Reunion, due out on DVD from Ariztical Entertainment on Oct. 27, the destination is a ten-year college reunion in Chicago, but that only serves as the rationale for a cross-country jaunt from Los Angeles.
Josh (played by Josh Watson — Last Look, Cutthroat Alley) and Michael (Michael Lovan) are in their early-30s, not yet fully engaged in careers and relationships and, if not overtly spoken, it is nevertheless fairly clear that both (for their own reasons) would like to retreat to happier times.
They are Millennials being Millennials and therefore somewhat suspicious of an uncertain future. So it’s a road trip for old college chums and the destination is not “Chicago,” but the carefree days of their past.
Michael, after college, abandoned his friend without so much as a nod and disappeared into doing this or that in Japan … it’s a little unclear as to exactly what. Josh, on the other hand, settled in Los Angeles and is more than willing to reconnect with Michael.
Is their trip going to be a time to catch up? A time for competition; an emotional game of one-upsmanship? Or something else?
