He is camping along the way living off the land, even doing so on his days off. He is what he considers a responsible man, earning and sending money to his girlfriend, Madison, a single mother, so that she need not concern herself with anything besides child rearing. The junior second that Alvin hires for his crew is Madison’s brother, Lance. Alvin’s controlling and judgmental nature comes to the surface in his dealings with more immature and irresponsible Lance, who goes back to the city on the weekends so that he can have “his little man squeezed”, something he cannot understand in Alvin being without Madison or any woman for such a long stretch of time. Alvin prefers to stay in the burnt out woods on the weekends as being alone with his thoughts and his chores – many which he considers his life lessons – he believes helps him think more clearly about life. Although their lives are affected by the few people they meet along the way, it is the aftermath of one of Lance’s weekends home that will forever change the nature of their relationship and their respective outlooks on life.
Plot: Two highway road workers spend the summer of 1988 away from their city lives. The isolated landscape becomes a place of misadventure as the men find themselves at odds with each other and the women they left behind.

the feel-good bromance of the year.
If Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd get stuck in the woods, does it make for a good movie?
This is the question Prince Avalanche asks of us, and the answer is a resounding yes. The film is a low-budget bromance that focuses on the relationship of two road workers revamping Texas roads after a forest fire wipes them out.
Spending weeks at a time isolated from society, our two protagonists get to know each other very well, and talk about everything and anything together – but mostly women. Alvin, (Paul Rudd) is dating Lance’s (Emile Hirsch) older sister Madison, while Lance is constantly looking forward to the day when he can leave the forest and head back into the city where all the girls are.
The pair of actors are wonderful together, and it’s their comical and engaging interactions that provide the framework for this movie. Director David Gordon Greene (The Sitter, Pineapple Express) is no stranger to comedy, and there are some brilliantly funny moments in Prince Avalanche, but the humor never takes full focus. There are long, meditative shots of nature mixed in with some great dramatic events that make this film a more reflective piece than a funny one.
Unfortunately, there is a bit of empty space, and some scenes drag on longer than they should. There is also this sub-plot involving an older alcoholic character that never really goes anywhere. Despite it’s flaws, the highs and lows in Alvin and Lance’s relationship make for a charming and inspirational story. Prince Avalanche is whole-heartedly an entertaining film that finds that rare sweet spot between the heart and funny bone.
Drama in the woods
While I’m not aware of the source material (or their existed one before the script evolved), this very much feels like a play. Or at least could be a play. Which is neither a bad or a good thing in itself. But the movie lacks something, which Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch can not compensate for: Essence.
It’s neither overly smart nor is it philosophical to an extent where you have to think about life or other things. That in itself is not a crime either. But it makes watching two men in woods talking not something most people will care about. Or would want to watch. Of course there is a story, but even that is predictable. And the “differences” between the two characters are not worth mentioning. Still while the actors cannot save the day as I said, they make it at least bearable (no pun intended)
