HIT SO HARD follows the journey of Patty Schemel, the openly gay drummer of Courtney Love's seminal rock band 'Hole.' As a young girl who always knew she was 'different' from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of 'Rolling Stone.' But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected 'slacker' generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. Written by
As a long-time fan of the band, I was completely riveted. I learned so much I didn't know. Patty went thru so much!!! Great interviews and a great film. The audience in the theater where I saw this were all totally into it. I had a real long talk with some other fans after the screening. We all agreed that "Hit So Hard" gave us more of an understanding of the band HOLE and also what it's like to be a woman drummer in the music business. I actually made some new friends! :) I recommend this film to anybody who is into HOLE or also drummers and women musicians. If this movie doesn't make you want to crank up your HOLE CDs then you don't like music. Just kidding. It's a real good movie.
