I was not sure about this movie when I requested it but I am so glad that I ordered it and I really liked it. It was better than I thought it would be and if you haven't watched it then I suggest it because it really is a good story. The opening scene might not be so great for children so parental guidiance is suggested.

"Trucker is a DVD movie about an independent-minded truck driver Diane Ford, accustomed to enjoying a carefree life marked by one-night love affairs, hard drinking, and long haul days on the road. But her life changes dramatically when she suddenly has the responsibility of caring for her eleven-year-old son Peter - whom she has not seen since he was a baby. Peter's father is incapacitated in the hospital; now Diane's life is turned upside down, as she struggles with caring for a boy as distrustful of her as she is of him. Difficult choices lie ahead for her, and she must come to grips with a future that holds more challenges and pitfalls than she has ever imagined. A thought-provoking and emotionally moving saga about the culmination of a turning point in one's life, highly recommended. 93 minutes, closed captioned, rated R."

"I don't want to say too much about this movie, so as not to ruin it for other viewers, other than to say that it is a very good movie. It is atypically unformulaic, the characters are quite real, the acting is professional and believable, and it does not try to tie up loose ends. It is also not like the typical Hollywood genre film (pick your genre). It has the feeling of meeting someone who has no interest in, or perhaps no awareness of a need for, falling into a comfortable stereotype -- and all the awkwardness, discomfort and discovery that such a situation can bring."

"Whoa! Did you see Michelle Monaghan in The Trucker, whom she portrays? I haven't seen this great of acting since anything I've seen by Hilary Swank. Yep, Monaghan is right up there with the greatest.
The story of a lone female trucker is a story of survival. Not just surviving a world of economic hardship, but surviving oneself. The balance between life and work achieved over ten years is now challenged by the arrival of her eleven year old boy, whose dad is dying of colon cancer. The change of character as portrayed by Monaghan is nothing short of brilliant. Though she's been hardened by circumstances of her life it is still difficult to imagine a mother, who has abandoned her son in favor of having her freedom regardless of its difficulties. The raw harshness of a mother upon a son as if he is a stranger is thawed out ever so slowly, but a woman cannot forget being a mother as she briefly smells the face of her sleeping son on the couch. Fighting to win inner peace, and to love herself through what she's procreated is a divine balance that wins the hearts of a viewing audience.
