Synopsis from IMDB
A grieving father in a downward spiral stumbles across a box of his recently deceased son's demo tapes and lyrics. Shocked by the discovery of this unknown talent, he forms a band in the hope of finding some catharsis.
I borrowed the DVD just to see and hear Anton Yelchin sing and was not really expecting to give it more than 3 stars but I ended up giving it 5.

Billy Crudup [I've only seen him in one movie, Dedication, which I liked in all its quirkiness], IMHO, does a great job as the self-destructing lead character and if you find yourself in the same situation, you might have a worse reaction to the tragedy. It's a bit complicated to explain without revealing the reason for his behavior which comes into light only at the last fourth part of the movie. Anton Yelchin, Lawrence Fishburne, and the rest of the actors, except for Selena Gomez, are good. It's worth multiple viewing. The original soundtrack is also good.

Highly recommended.

Currently streaming on Amazon; DVD on Netflix
