Crash (1996)
Exterior Character Residence
Don Mills and the 401

The film’s main characters live in this apartment complex on Graydon Hall Drive. For a film that eroticizes all things expressways, James and Catherine’s home is fittingly located at the intersection of two of the city’s main arteries—the 401 and the 404/DVP—of which they have a clear view from their balcony.
