Kalifornia is a 1993 crime based thriller and a must watch film. It is the story of a group of three people who sat on a journey to learn the whereabouts of some ‘wanted’ serial killers. After coming a long way, they realise that someone strange is within
their car and could be a serious threat if not off-loaded as soon as possible.
The plot has been directed by Dominic Sena and written by Stephen Ley and Tim Metcalfe. The main cast includes, Brad Pitt as ‘Early Grayce’, David Milford the driver, David Duchovny as ‘Brian Kessler’, John Zarchen as ‘Peter’, David Rose as ‘Eric’, Michelle
Forbes as ‘Carrie Laughlin’, Juliette Lewis as ‘Adele Corners’ and Patricia Sill as ‘Carol’.
Brian Kessler, a journalist researching serial killers, and his photographer girlfriend Carrie set out on a cross-country tour of the sites of the killings.
Sharing the ride and their expenses are Early Grayce, a paroled white trash criminal, and his girlfriend Adele.
As the trip progresses, Early begins to appear more and more unstable, and Brian and Carrie begin to fear that they may have a real-life killer in the back seat of their car.
His photographer girlfriend Carrie Laughlin (Michelle Forbes) persuades him to move to
California; and, when his book project is accepted by a publisher, they decide to drive from
Pittsburgh to California and visit infamous murder sites along the way. Short on funds, Brian posts a ride-share ad.
The film ends with Brian and Carrie in a California beach house. She tells him that a gallery is interested in her art, and he suggests they go out to celebrate.
He leaves his tape player on; and Adele’s voice is heard, talking about how good Carrie and Brian were to her and Early and how much their friendship means to her.
