"'TRUCKER' IS A WONDERFUL NEW MOVIE, WITH A CAREER-CHANGING PERFORMANCE BY MICHELLE MONAGHAN. 4 STARS. HER PERFORMANCE CLEARLY DESERVES AN OSCAR NOMINATION"
- ROGER EBERT

"TRUCKER IS A REVELATION.GIVE IT A CHANCE AND YOU WON'T BE SORRY. THE FILM IS BUILT AROUND A STRIKINGLY TOUGH-MINDED BUT BEAUTIFULLY DRAWN PERFORMANCES BY MICHELLE MONAGHAN. IT'S A WONDERFULLY ROUNDED PERFORMANCE, REMINISCENT IN ITS DEPTH AND HEART OF THE ONE MELISSA LEO GAVE IN FROZEN RIVER"
- THE HUFFINGTON POST

"TRUCKER IS A STAR-MAKING PERFORMANCE FOR MONAGHAN, MUCH THE SAME AS "WORKING GIRL" ONCE PUT MELANIE GRIFFITH ON THE MAP. LOOK FOR A LOT OF AWARDS BUZZ ON HER THIS FALL. JAMES MOTTERN'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT IS REFRESHING, UNSENTIMENTAL, AND UNFORGETTABLE. BRAVO!"
- FOXNEWS

"IN AN HONESTLY OBSERVED AND UNDERSTATED LITTLE FILM CALLED TRUCKER, AND EXCELLENT CAST VIBRATES WITH AUTHENTICITY TO TELL AN IMPASSIONED STORY. MS. MONAGHAN IS TERRIFIC."
- REX REED, NEW YORK OBSERVER

"THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFULLY UNCONVENTIONAL THINGS TO LIKE ABOUT THIS INDEPENDENT FILM... HAUNTING... MOTTERN HAS GIVEN US A RARE THING, A BLUE COLLAR WOMAN WITH THE GRIT AND RIGHTEOUS STRENGTH OF A CLINT EASTWOOD CHARACTER. MONAGHAN HAS GIVEN HER HEART."
- LOS ANGELES TIMES

"MICHELLE MONAGHAN BREAKS THROUGH INTO OSCAR TERRITORY"
- MTV.COM

". TRUCKER IS A KNOCKOUT. MONAGHAN IS PHENOMENAL AS DIANE, UNDERSTATED YET RIVETING."
- THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS

- LEONARD MALTIN

"MICHELLE MONAGHAN - THE SEXY GONE BABY GONE ACTRESS IS GENERATING SIZZLING CHATTER FOR AN OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE IN JAMES MOTTERN'S INDIE TRUCKER. MONAGHAN'S PERF COULD GENERATE SOME SERIOUS CRITICAL AND AWARDS ATTENTION"
- ANDTHEWINNERIS.BLOG.COM

"FILM BUFFS MIGHT HAVE RECOGNIZED MICHELLE MONAGHAN'S APPEAL IN SUCH MOVIES AS "KISS KISS BANG BANG," "NORTH COUNTRY" AND "GONE BABY GONE." BUT SHE HASN'T HAD A CHANCE TO CARRY A MOVIE UNTIL "TRUCKER," WHICH HAD ITS WORLD PREMIERE AT TRIBECA AND MAKES US REALIZE WHAT WE'VE BEEN MISSING. HER PERFORMANCE ELICITS THE SAME EXHILARATING SENSE OF DISCOVERY THAT SURROUNDED SALLY FIELD'S BREAKTHROUGH IN "NORMA RAE." MONAGHAN'S STAR-MAKING PERFORMANCE ASSURES THAT IT WILL BE REMEMBERED."
- THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"IT'S STILL A PERFORMANCE YOU DON'T WANT A MISS. MICHELLE MONAGHAN IS MEMORABLE ... AND I'M DAMN HAPPY TO WRITE THAT"
- CINEMATICAL.COM

- BOXOFFICE

"CRITIC'S PICK. EVERY NOW AND THEN A SMALL FILM COMES ALONG THAT FEATURES A STAR-MAKING PERFORMANCE. IT'S THE KIND OF ROLE THAT MADE SALLY FIELD A MOVIE STAR IN 'NORMA RAE' AND COULD DO THE SAME FOR MONAGHAN. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC, FULL-BODIES, THREE-DIMENSIONAL PORTRAYAL... ONE OF THE BEST PERFORMANCES YOU WILL SEE IN THIS, OR ANY OTHER YEAR."
- BACKSTAGE.COM

"IT'S AN INCREDIBLY ACCOMPLISHED, TIGHTLY CONTAINED, REMARKABLY THOUGHTFUL, AND ENORMOUSLY MOVING PIECE OF CINEMA. IT ALSO MARKS A CLEAR WATERSHED IN THE ACTING CAREER OF MICHELLE MONAGHAN."

- THE WRAP

"A SMOOTH RIDE THANKS TO MONAGHAN, AND AN IMPRESSIVE ENSEMBLE."
- THE VILLAGE VOICE

"TOUGH AND BELIEVABLE, MONAGHAN'S MOMENTS ARE REAL AND RELAXED AND TAKE MOTTERN'S MOVIE TO ANOTHER LEVEL. THIS IS A SOLID INDEPENDENT FEATURE. THE CAMERA WORK IS PERFECT. WRITER/DIRECTOR JAMES MOTTERN SHOULD BE PARTICULARLY PROUD"
- MOVING PICTURES MAGAZINE

"THIS IS THE KIND OF ROLE FOR WOMEN THAT ONLY SEEMS TO POP UP IN SMALL FILMS, PERSONAL FILMS, OR SELF-PRODUCED FILMS. DIANA IS A RICH, REAL, COMPLICATED PART, AND MONAGHAN INHABITS EVERY NASTY, FRUSTRATED, HOPEFUL MOMENT OF IT."
- MATTHEWSLIKELYSTORY.BLOGSPOT.COM

"THE MOVIE IS A SMALL GEM. NOT ONLY IS IT WELL SHOT BUT EACH FRAME IS QUITE SEAMLESS IN TELLING THE STORY. THE MAIN CHARACTER, THE TRUCKER, PLAYED BY MICHELLE MONAGHAN, IS HONEST AND REAL."
- GOTHAMGAL.COM

"WHEN IT COMES TO DRAMA IT DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS.TRUCKER FIRES ON ALL CYLINDERS AND DELIVERS A TOUCHING AND HEART FELT TALE THAT OFFERS HOPE AND A FEW SMILES ALONG THE WAY."

Written & Directed by: James Mottern

Starring: Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Fillion, Benjamin Bratt, Joey Lauren Adams, Jimmy Bennett



Diane Ford (Michelle Monaghan), a vivacious and successful independent truck driver, leads a carefree life of long-haul trucking, one night stands and all-night drinking with Runner (Nathan Fillion, Serenity, Waitress, "Castle") until the evening her estranged 11-year-old son, Peter (Jimmy Bennett, young James Kirk in Star Trek) is unexpectedly dropped at her door.

Peter hasn't seen his mother since he was a baby and wants to live with Diane as little as she wants him, but they are stuck with each other - at least for now, while his father Len (Benjamin Bratt) is in the hospital.

Burdened with this new responsibility and seeing the life of freedom she's fought for now jeopardized, Diane steps reluctantly into her past and looks sidelong at an uncharted future that is not as simple or straightforward as she had once believed possible.
