Roadie


A beautifully evoked Forest Hills (dim taverns and tidy lawns) is the setting for this quietly powerful story of middle-aged dreamers. Chief among them is scruffy Jimmy (the excellent Ron Eldard), a roadie recently kicked off the Blue yster Cult tour after 20 years. He moves back in with his mom (Five Easy Pieces' Lois Smith) and begins the tricky process of undoing his self-deceptions. Director Michael Cuesta (L.I.E.) knows the terrain, balancing neighborhood bluster with nostalgia and tough love.—JR (SVA, Apr 23 at 9:30pm; AMC Village VII, Apr 26 at 4pm; Clearview Chelsea, Apr 28 at 10:30pm, Apr 30 at 3:30pm)
