The Vigil is a very low budget Candian film about a group of Nirvana fans who travel from Alberta to Seattle for the tribute to Kurt Cobain following his suicide. In it's way, the film has a charm to it, but it is also constantly undermined by the low budget and poor acting. The film does not even contain one Nirvana song, ironic since the film is meant to be a tribute to Cobain. The film does not have the knowledge of movies and is not as entertaining as say, High Fidelity, but it shares that films same love of music. The Vigil is a good, not great film. By Grade: 7/10.
