Road Games (also known as Fausse Route) is a 2016 British-French co-production thriller film written and directed by Abner Pastoll. The film stars Andrew Simpson as a Brit hitchhiker lost in France.[1] IFC Films released the film theatrically in the US on March 4, 2016.[2] Icon Film Distribution released the film in the UK and Ireland on August 26, 2016.


On a sunny summer day in the French countryside, drifters Jack and Véronique hook up and hit the road together. But when they accept a ride from a local oddball, the pair finds themselves thrown into a deadly game of cat and mouse in which nothing is what it seems. Bursting with nonstop twists and turns and an undercurrent of Hitchcockian malice, this riveting psychological thriller is a hell of a ride.
