Cute romantic comedy starring Josh Charles as a man who since childhood has been obsessed with traffic, watching cars going back and forth on the freeway near his home. He falls in love with Anne Heche but is unable to part with his beloved profession when she gets a great job in Paris. Is she worth his leaving his work behind, or can he just pick up and follow her to France in the hopes that they also need someone to direct their traffic? Christine Lahti has a hilarious supporting role in this heartwarming film by Bryan Gordon. If you’re lucky, the edition you rent will also include Gordon’s Academy Award-winning short Ray’s Male Heterosexual Dance Hall with this rental.
