Track 29 movie scene

Theresa Russell and Gary Oldman embark on a different kind of train ride in Track 29.

Gary Oldman (Sid & Nancy), Theresa Russell (Insignificance) and Christopher Lloyd (Piranha) star in the eccentric 1988 drama film Track 29, directed by Nicolas Roeg (Don’t Look Now) , Russell’s then-husband.

Unhappy with her barren marriage to her model train-loving surgeon husband (Lloyd), restless suburban housewife Linda Henry (Russell) craves something to awaken her lonely existence.

She soon becomes captivated with Martin (Oldman), a hitchhiker who drops in on Linda claiming to be the child she gave up for adoption after a teenage pregnancy.  They spend time together trying to forge a bond, but bizarre events and behaviors make Linda wonder about this oddity who has shown up at her doorstep.

Executive produced by George Harrison and written by Dennis Potter (Pennies From Heaven, The Singing Detective), this DVD is the U.S. disc debut for Track 29.

If you’re a fan of such deliriously splintered and imaginative Nic Roeg movies as The Man Who Fell to Earth and Walkabout,  this strange little trifle will definitely amuse you.

Check out the trailer, which is quite trippy:
