Storyline

In the Autumn of 1960, a fluke atmospheric weather condition allows a young teenager, Parry Tender, to receive a radio broadcast from New York City. Nestled in the Northern town of Goose Lake, Saskatchewan, Parry believes the contest the New York radio D.J. is running may be his ticket out of town, and away from a life to which he feels he never belonged. When Debbie Baxter, a young girl from California, arrives in the town by way of her father's position with the military, Parry soon discovers love, loss, and the magic of rock and roll.

Growing up is hard
5 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

Caught 45 R.P.M. on the cable Aboriginal Television Network (ATN) the other night. Had never heard of it before but as it drew me into the story I was so impressed by the young actors portraying the main characters. Plus the supporting cast is terrific. If you're a little older (as I am), and were an awkward young teenager when rock'n roll (as broadcast through the radio airwaves) was in still it's infancy, then this movie will bring back a wave of nostalgia. The simplicity and poignancy in its delivery is outstanding. The characters as presented, behave and have dialogue that make them 'real people', so much so that in watching them you might believe you are vicariously being allowed to take part in their lives. I would whole-heartedly recommend this to any and everyone.
