Storyline

On a train, Keith and Mick chat about the blues and the Rolling Stones are born. Douglas and Joe chat in front of a New Jersey music store, and a band is born: as Douglas's sister tells us, it's one of many that don't make it. We follow Douglas from high school (1963-64), when he sees himself as a loser, into the band, playing drums and singing backup - then as the front man. There are tensions, a breakup, an audition in front of a major player, and decisions. Douglas pursues Grace, a country-club gal with hip sensibilities who believes in him. There's also his father, working class, wanting Douglas to apply himself as he watches his own life fill with regrets. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I Loved this Movie, and you might too....
22 January 2013 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

"Not Fade Away" is more of an autobiographic story than a formulaic movie. It's perhaps nonlinear for this reason. The movie doesn't quite know if it's a comedy or a tragedy. But who cares? I laughed a lot, and I felt the melancholy of youthful longing for real love; the idealistic search for identity; being caught in the fantasy of rock'n'roll; the tribulation of suburban conformity.

Being a musician myself, this is the first film to capture the truth of being in a rock band. "That Thing You Do" was just silly. "Almost Famous" was a study of excess. "Not Fade Away" shows us the kid who's good enough to make it, but never will, because that's the authentic convention of rock'n'roll.

This movie is pure joy for someone like me. David Chase gives us his story of suburban 60's rock'n'roll. It's funny and tender, and the music is downright fantastic.

While plenty of average movie watchers will find it mildly pleasing, people like me will adore it.....

A big Thank You to the folks who made this film. You nailed it!
