Get ready to get sad—Roadie looks like that kind of movie.

30 Nov

The trailer itself nearly broke my heart. I love how director Michael Cuesta explores heavy subjects that no one wants to think about. (Remember the pedophilia in 2001’s L.I.E.?) Roadie is about a guy who, after touring with a band for 20 years, returns to Queens to live with his mom and runs into his old high school crush and nemesis (who are now married). The film moved critics at Tribeca with its honesty and supposedly terrific performances by Bobby-I’m-So-Hot-Cannavale and Ron Eldard. Opens January 6, but on demand December 2. (What? Whatever.)
