Wed January 5, 2011 Return to Film News

  • Roadside Attractions has acquired U.S. theatrical rights to the drama "The Music Never Stopped".

    Jim Kohlberg directed the film from a script by Gwyn Lurie and Gary Marks.

    The cast includes JK Simmons, Lou Taylor Pucci, Cara Seymour and Julia Ormond.

    The story is about a father who is trying to adjust to the cerebral trauma suffered by his estranged son. Though he is haunted by the missed opportunities with his son he fears he'll never get back, things change when a music therapist recommends a steady dose of the films that informed the son's soul. The youth loved counterculture 60s rock and roll and especially the meditative jams of The Grateful Dead. The father forms an emotionally vibrant bond with the son he feared he'd lost.
