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

Excellent Film!
17 June 2003 | by (Yorkshire, UK) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film exactly a year after it was released in the U.S, and after 2 years I still love it loads. It's about Lance (Eddie Mills) and Mike Ryan (James Franco), two brothers who start a rock n' roll band. Lance's wife Chelsea (Maureen Flannigan) also joins, and the brother's best friend Ben (Glenn Quinn) becomes the band's - who are called Beyond Gravity - manager. It's a very good movie and most of the acting is fantastic, the late Glenn Quinn did a wicked job of playing the manager drove by money and power and by the jealousy he had on Lance and Mike growing up before he got his own record label - Huge -, the big, posh house, + Mike's girlfriend Rebecca (Cyia Batton). James Franco also acted very well as Mike, although thinking about the movie it seems he isn't in it much, due to his character overdosing and dying, he really does show of some good potential. Eddie Mills did a great job singing, and the girls were good actresses as well. All in all this film is pretty dark, what with drug overdoses, money/power-hungry managers, and how Lance + Chelsea's relationship is strained, collapsing and being rebuilt. I'd recommend anyone to watch this film as I loved it. =)

And to quote Glenn Quinn's character Ben: "I'm the star here in it, that's right I'm the talented one!" and that Glenn was so true to you.
