USA | 2002 | 94 min | PG
Three childhood best friends, and a guy they just met, take a road trip across the country, finding themselves and their friendship in the process.
In this truly underrated vehicle for the legendary Miss Britney Spears, former friends Lucy, Kit and Mimi (Spears, Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning) reunite for a last-minute, post-graduation trip to California. While their initial goal is to get the pregnant Mimi to an audition, the trio ends up reconnecting while on the road, making pit-stops for late-night talks, karaoke, snacks and even a little romance.
CROSSROADS and its star did not deserve the blind hate they got back in 2002 (and often still get today). Directed by Tamra Davis (BILLY MADISON, HALF BAKED) and written by Shonda Rhimes (GREY’S ANATOMY, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER), the film is an ode to the healing power of pop music and friendship that isn’t afraid to confront issues that continue to affect young women including (content warning): sexual assault and rape, body image, internalized misogyny, and parental abuse.
Director: Tamra Davis
Cast: Britney Spears, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning
