In ADOPT A HIGHWAY, Russ Millings has just been released from prison after serving 21 years for a 3rd strike conviction for possessing an ounce of marijuana. As he tries to adapt to a world he doesn’t recognize – including trying to learn how to use the internet – he finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster behind the fast food restaurant where he works as a dishwasher. Unsure of what to do, and caught between impulses of kindness and panic, Russ soon realizes this could be his chance at redemption.
My Opinion: This was an interesting film with Ethan Hawke and how he is trying to live life and finds a baby he decides he wants to keep but faced with the laws and process on keeping the baby. It was touching and so slow spots but a good movie.
