Synopsis

Gary and Jenny share the same cramped “office space” as all beat cops: the front seat of a patrol car. Their evolving relationship is an emotional rollercoaster ride that stands in often-comedic contrast to the procession of thugs and criminals filling the back seat.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Standby

    Kinda sweet (as in awww that's so sweet). I sort of wish there was more to the arc, but I love the idea of carrying out the entire story in the vehicle. When asked to describe her film in ten words or less for a TIFF interview, Regan nailed it: "Friendship, thieves and rap music in a police patrol car." Sweet (as in supercool). Also Andrew Paul's performance is sweet (as in awesome).
