excellent movie that draws U in ...and doesn't let GO !
22 July 2002 | by (Stony Brook , New York) – See all my reviews

Great Mix of emotions, believable characters, family in dysfunction ,facing LIFE and GUILT, youth growing into adulthood, and period pieces (harkening back to the emergence of Rock & and Roll, and specifically here--> Rockabilly ! ... an underrated unique American invention ( i.e. see Ken Burn's Jazz docuementary)). Director Max Myers & cast have truly made a must-see epic, that renders one so involved with the film, u become one with those and that being portrayed. A timely film, hitting on emotional chords in these times of patriotic and homespun yearnings. I personnaly viewed it at it's NY premiere @ the Stony Brook Film festival. The crowd reaction following the movie and my personal talk with writer & director Max Myers, at a reception the following day cemented my opinion on this film and the extrodinary , yet humble and exacting efforts of all involved. See it for yourself ! U as an American and film connisuer owe it ... to yourself!
