Synopsis
From the Internet Movie Database:

Two actors. On a road. With a tree. An effective description of the world Tony A and Tony Z find themselves inhabiting in Alan Arkin's film. Far from home, awaiting fame, recognition -- or just an audience -- the Tonys barely notice their lives mirroring the sad comedy, Waiting for Godot. As they journey through the Southland, they find much less than they bargained for, trying to bring Beckett's classic to a largely disinterested modern audience.


Comments
This small, independent film was shown at a few film festivals in the mid-nineties, and has been virtually unavailable ever since -- although it was shown recently on the Bravo channel. If you have seen it, and would like to submit a review, please email Apmonia!
