Storyline

A recording contract: It's the brass ring for every rock band. And now Beyond Gravity, a group fronted by charismatic singer-songwriter-guitarist Lance and his hard-living younger brother Mike, and managed by their boyhood pal Ben, have finally grabbed theirs. It promises to be everything the three guys have worked for since high school, and when they leave their hometown of Austin, Texas to record for Los Angeles indie label Rage Records, Lance vows to his wife--Beyond Gravity's beautiful bass player Chelsea--to stay focused on the things that really matter: "It's all about the music. We're not gonna let anything screw it up." After almost a year of rehearsing and recording, however, there's still no release, no tour, no video. Part of the delay is due to Mike's growing substance addictions and subsequent stretches in rehab. Rage Records president Jerry Tollman tells Ben he's reluctant to spend more money on the band when it can all go south in a flash. When Mike is busted for heroin... Written by LJC

VH1 Produced This Drama
21 October 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I can`t say I`m a fan of the VH1 music channel . MTV2 is more my scene though I`ve gone off it since they scrapped the viewers request hours . I was very surprised to see that VH1 produced this movie , I knew MTV did but since VH1 is " MTV on mogadon " I wasn`t expecting much , but at any early stage AT ANY COST shows it`s not going to play out in a predictable manner

Okay there are one or two cliches but this is a fairly cynical film , and the best thing about the movie is Ben , a manager who shafts everyone for the chance of a quick buck . Ben is an utter b@stard and comes close to being one of the best screen villains I`ve seen in a while , I promise you you`ll hate this guy with a vengance , he makes Simon Cowell look like the kindest man who`s ever lived . Just a pity the film ends in a laughably contrived manner , but it`s a lot better than I expected
