Storyline

Jay and Matt were once wide-eyed, would-be rock stars, eager to leave their hometown and head for the big city and never look back. After 15 years of struggling to get a record deal in NYC, they find themselves back in their small working class hometown, dreaming of what might have been. Now, at 40 years old, they're out to give it one more shot. While Matt struggles with personal demons and a fear of being too old, Jay is ultimately faced with having to make a choice between his artistic dreams and his responsibility to his wife and 5 year old son.

Great Movie!
2 October 2009 | by pezmonkey-1See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this great, little movie at the Idaho International Film Festival. What a treat.

DRAWING WITH CHALK is a sweet, thoughtful, exceptionally well produced, Do-It-Yourself movie with none of the problems of most DIY movies. It is beautifully shot. The performances are all top notch with none of those pesky "Actor!" moments to pull you out of the movie. The sound mix is crisp. And it is nice for a movie about musicians to have good music in it.

You owe it to yourself to seek out this movie, fall in love with it and dedicate yourself to see the next piece of exceptional work by Todd Giglio and Christopher Springer.
