El Camino (2008)

A road trip film of three strangers delivering the ashes of their dead friend offers more than just a journey of catharsis.

Elliot knew Stephen in foster care a couple decades earlier. Lily dated Stephen for a few years. Gray was his best friend growing up. They meet at his funeral and decide to render his ashes one more trip. As they travel, personal issues begin to bubble to the surface and demand addressing.

One of the strengths of the film is that it is understated and not an in your face moral tale. The performances from largely unknown actors are very well done.
