In the early 1960s, Eddie and the Cruisers was the hottest rock band around. But the tragic death of its lead singer broke up the band. Only Eddie Wilson is not dead. He works as a construction worker in Montreal. His love of music forces him to create a new band which will have to struggle with its anonymity. Written by

When Eddie drives from Montreal into Manhattan, he drives over the Brooklyn Bridge. That would be a very indirect route. See more »

I started out watching Eddie before I could walk and It is to this day one of my absolute favorite movies. This movie brings back great memories for me and now that my daughter loves this movie as much as I did I hope it will mean as much to her. This is definitely a classic in the making if you ask me. Some of the greatest things didn't get the proper recognition until many years sometimes hundred of years after the fact.A line from the original "the world needs dreamers" and I couldn't agree more. This movie allows that to happen. Who in their life hasn't hoped and dreamed for something and been knocked down? I think this movie gives people that connection to real life but also hope in seeing "Eddie" actually come back from the lowest point in his life. I would recommend this movie to everyone, male, female, young, old and anywhere in between.
