Inspired by Bob Dylan’s classic song and the fact that Highway 61 actually starts in Thunder Bay, Ont., McDonald and McKellar joined forces to create this acclaimed rock ’n’ roll road movie. When naïve barber Pokey Jones (McKellar) meets Jackie Bangs (Buhagiar), a flamboyant roadie on the run, it doesn’t take her long to persuade him to leave Thunder Bay for New Orleans. Jones finds himself driving not only Jackie, but also a frozen corpse she claims is her brother. Meanwhile, in hot pursuit of the fleeing couple is Mr. Skin (Pastko), a bizarre and deluded character who thinks of himself as the Devil. As the three travel south, sparks fly and romance blooms between Pokey and Jackie.
