Story


Two estranged childhood friends channel their talent and passion for music into a cross-country road trip that brings them face to face with their past on a quest to confront the future. Spyder (Kevin Zegers - "Transamerica", "Dawn of the Dead"), a world famous musician whose debut album is a huge hit, retreats to his hometown after his sophomore effort flops. There he reconnects with his former friend and collaborator, Eric Genson (Jason Ritter - "Happy Endings", W), now a middle school music teacher. It's a reunion that forces the two to recall their youthful ambitions and re-examine the choices they've made.

Accompanied by legendary rock 'n' roll impresario August West (Peter Fonda - "Easy Rider", "Ulee's Gold"), Spyder's raucous crew of musicians, The Lost Soulz, and their fiery manager, Rose Atropos (Taryn Manning - "Hustle & Flow", "8 Mile"), set off on a journey along historic Route 66 in hopes of salvaging a long lost dream and rekindling the mojo that made Spyder's debut album a huge success. Featuring appearances by some of the world's greatest blues artists, a killer soundtrack, scenes of mayhem, triumph and tragedy, "The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll" is an unforgettable wild ride that brings two friends closer to each other, their destiny, and the truth behind the music.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..presents artistic self-destruction with the solemnity of a movie that has invented a spanking-new genre..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
“..is so shamelessly cliche, so captivated by nostalgia that one can mistake the film's ignorance for well-intentioned earnestness -- a Dewey Cox story without all the humorous self-reflexivity..”
by Sam Kressner [Filmcritic.com]
“..there's nothing inherently flawed about this nomadic and potentially life-affirming narrative, but Rosenbaum manages to instill every moment on the road with a sense of shrill conventionality..”
by Glenn Heath Jr. [Slant Magazine]
