Romantic Road

Dir: Oliver McGarvey (2017)

WINNER: BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY, EDMONTON INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2017

WINNER: BEST OF THE FEST AWARD, VICTORIA FILM FESTIVAL 2017


One English couple. One battered English car. 5000 miles through the heart of India.

Meet Rupert and Jan Grey, a free-spirited and eccentric upper-class English couple in their sixties, married for 35 years and on the verge of retirement.

Not content to live out their autumn years by the fire, this intrepid couple ignore everyone’s advice and embark on a remarkable journey – to drive Rupert’s father’s 1936 Rolls Royce across India on their way to a human rights festival in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Over six months and some 5000 miles, they fall into company with tea-wallahs and maharajahs, dodge tribal conflicts, negotiate with border officials and make constant mechanical repairs.

With its mix of road-movie, biopic, travelogue and madcap adventure,ROMANTIC ROAD is at once a rare glimpse into a uniquely inspired expedition that redefines later-life, a study of a love story 35 years in the making and a reminder to never stop embracing the possibilities of life.
