About the Film:
Marking the film directorial debut of David Chase, best known as the creator of one of the most lauded television series in history, HBO’s The Sopranos, Not Fade Away transports audiences back to the 1960's, in suburban New Jersey. Experiencing the rise of the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and many other bands now considered rock and roll royalty, a group of high school friends decide to do what so many others dreamed of: forming their own rock band. But these teens must also navigate through the bumpy waters of graduating, going to college, falling in love, and striving for success. Chase has crafted a pitch-perfect film about the rise and significance of rock and roll, as well as an inspired portrait of life, love, and family in the 1960s, capturing the era’s conflicting attitudes and ideologies. Not Fade Away is a must-see for anyone who experienced the 60s, as well as anyone who loves rock-and-roll and is ready to have a rockin' good time.
