“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,” writes Robert Frost in his famous poem. “And sorry I could not travel both.” Frost’s beloved poem ponders the ideas of choice and self-determination with a devastatingly simple metaphor. The upcoming feature film starring Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning grapples with those same concepts, in a slightly more complicated way.
The Roads Not Taken is a film directed by British auteur Sally Potter that follows a daughter (Fanning) who takes her ailing father (Bardem) to New York City, in an attempt to snap him out of his dream state, through which he explores two other lives he never lived.
