Run the Tide Taylor Lautner as Reymund Hightower

Don’t Fight the Tide. Run It. 

Best known as Twilight’s hunky werewolf, Taylor Lautner stretches his acting muscles in Run the Tide, an indie road drama about a bitter young man who is so desperate to protect his 10-year-old half-brother (Nico Christou) from their junkie mother (Constance Zimmer) that he keep takes off with him for the California coast when she gets released from a six-year spell in prison. Now clean, she wants a second chance at family life, but he remains unforgiving. It’s a melodramatic story, and the script and direction are a tad flat, but the cast’s committed performances keep us engaged.

Certificate 12. Runtime 93 mins. Director Soham Mehta
