The rock 'n' roll drama Not Fade Away, a deeply felt love letter to the music of the 1960s, is a film about dreams that come true—and the ones that never do. It's 1964, and after the Rolling Stones appear on television three best friends (John Magaro, Jack Huston, Will Brill) from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band. Douglas (Magaro), has a dream of "making it" on a grand scale, and pursues it in the face of disapproval from his dad (James Gandolfini), who both loves and doubts his rocker son. With music expertly curated by Steven Van Zandt (of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band), Not Fade Away is an intimate, powerful, sometimes painful and funny drama about coming of age and the sort of indelible memories—musical and otherwise—that end up making us who we are. The film also reunites writer/director David Chase with Gandolfini, both of whom made TV history with "The Sopranos" series. Official Web Site
