Redwood Highway is opening in Portland and Vancouver! The filmmakers are excited to share this film with northwest audiences, and will be holding Q&As after selected screenings.*

Living in a comfortable retirement community in Southern Oregon, estranged from her family, unsatisfied with her surroundings, and generally not happy about life, Marie (Shirley Knight) decides to journey 80 miles on foot to the coast of Oregon to revisit the ocean of her past for the first time in 45 years.

Once reluctant to attend her granddaughter’s wedding, she now arrives as an unexpected guest. Along the way, she meets an extraordinary cast of characters and discovers that you’re never too old to learn something about life … and about yourself.

Star Shirley Knight is a two time Academy Award nominee, Tony Award Winner, Golden Globe Winner, two time EMMY Winner, and Venice Film Festival Best Actress Winner.

Redwood Highway


“Shirley Knight relishes her return to the limelight, and audiences will be delighted by her warm, stirring performance. It’s a low-key charmer with a large-souled performance at its center. One of the best roles of her career.” – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“… traveling with Marie is a delight.

[Shirley] Knight manages to run the gamut of Marie’s emotions, often with the slightest of changes in expression: the momentary hurt of being old and invisible to the young; the frustration at needing the help of others; the joy of her surroundings; the realization of her greatest mistake and of her chance for deliverance.” – Bill Edelstein, VARIETY

“5 Stars. Redwood Highway is both heartwarming and courageous. A feel good movie. Redwood Highway is pure joy to watch. Every actor serves the piece with a stand-out-performance; played beautifully by Shirley Knight, with particular attention to every detail, with a special nod to Tom Skerritt. If you like warm gentle coming of age stories, see Redwood Highway and yes bring some tissue.” – Clent Bowers/Burbank Film Examiner

“Some films merit the mention of the cinematography, Redwood Highway is one of those films. Patrick Neary’s grasp of the film’s lifeblood is dazzling and nothing short of genius. He captures the majesty of the Redwood National Forest and the breathtaking beauty of the Northern California/Oregon coastline and leaves the viewer breathless, lost in their own imagination.” – Janet Walker/

“Downright charming. The fiercely independent Marie is someone we root for, worry about and wring our hands over in equal measure.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES
