Sopranos mastermind David Chase's autobiopgraphically-tinged drama Not Fade Away stars John Magaro as Douglas, a music-obsessed New Jersey high-school senior who quickly abandons his thoughts of joining the military when he hears the British Invasion, especially the raw blues swagger of the young Rolling Stones. He begins drumming in local bands with his buddies and, over the course of summer and winter breaks home from college, fights with his gruff dad (James Gandolfini), tries to win the heart of a girl he's been crushing on since forever, and keeps his dreams of being a rock star alive. As the sixties unfold, Douglas' band finally catches the break they've been looking for, but internal fighting threatens to sink the group. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Great film, wonderfully acted. The cinematography is in keeping with the feel of the era. The set designs and clothes and parental attitudes for many of us raised at that time is heartfelt and realistic. I really liked the film because that was my generation watching the Rolling Stones for the first time on a black and white TV with our parents and realizing that this was it! My life, like the main characters life...changed forever by the British Invasion. Gandolfini is great.
