ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart.Written by

I first saw this film at a film festival, and then I saw it again at a fundraiser. It made me laugh so hard I cried--and my stomach hurt from laughing. I can't wait until more of my friends have seen this movie--there are so many great moments in the plot and funny one-liners that I can't tell them without spoiling the movie! One key scene near the end brought tears to my eyes because it was so moving. This is a MUST SEE for fans of the music of Rush, as well as anyone who loved This Is Spinal Tap, The Commitments, School of Rock or High Fidelity. Some excellent cameos. It's a comedy about music, and the underlying message is one of believing in oneself and one's dreams.
