One of the Audience Favorites from Sundance

Young at Heart” was one of my absolute favorites at The Sundance Film Festival. It was the only movie I saw all week that got a standing ovation from the audience. It hits theaters in April, and probably won’t be there long. It’s a documentary about a show choir for senior citizens (average age: 84) that sings music from rock and punk bands like The Clash, Sonic Youth, The Ramones, Queen, The Beatles and more. It’s a riot. Here’s a selection of clips from the film. Check out “I Want to be Sedated”

  1. That was very fun. Thank you.

    Since I've started visiting your site I've gotten two tips on movies to watch in a month's time.  That's gotta be some kind of record!

    As an aside:

    I know there's lots to be disgusted by on youtube, but there's plenty to appreciate too.  As a home schooling parent I am sometimes challenged by hard questions about the last 50+ years of History.   With youtube, I can find musical performances and famous speeches with a couple of mouse clicks.   Just about any event or performance captured by a camera is there. 

  2. Ha ha ha ! Sheer brilliance. A total classic. That's it! I'm bringin' them to Chicago on tour. Hee hee. Can you see the headline…"Young at Heart Show Choir to play Lollapalooza." Ha! Tanks to our ol' pal, Phil. Can't wait to see the film.
