Along the Roadside is a 2014 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Zoran Lisinac. His award-winning debut film stars Iman Crosson, Angelina Häntsch, Michael Madsen, Lazar Ristovski and Daniel Grozdich. The film tells a story about two people from different parts of the world who after a chance encounter set out on a road trip across California, both for the reasons of their own – Varnie escaping his pregnant girlfriend and Nena searching for the concert of her favorite band. The film explores themes of racism, social responsibility, "postromance" and culture clash against the backdrop of vast California – from San Francisco to LA and inland across the desert. Varnie, a self-proclaimed "sailor who has left one shore but hasn't yet reached the other one" could most aptly be fitted into, what the academic Marco Abel refers to as "postromance cinema" in which the characters reject he idealized notion of lifelong monogamy.
