The story of a youngster’s dreams gone haywire, ‘Roadie’ is a film that is sure to hit home with its audiences. The film, even though made on a shoestring budget, is a gruelingly honest portrayal of life in blue-collar America.
It is strengthened by its fantastic cast, that includes Ron Eldard in the lead role of Jimmy Testagross, supported by actors like Bobby Cannavale and Jill Hennessy, who go on to make the movie a captivating tale of life in the real world. The film centers on the real-life band, ‘Blue Oyster Cult’, of which Jimmy is an active member, and has been away from home, presumably for nearly two decades. Watch Roadie online to see what happens, when this youngster returns home, now as a middle-aged man, only to face his mother with the fact that he has hardly been able to accomplish even a fraction of what he had set out for. The film explores the sensitive equation that prevails in a mother-son relationship, as it tells the story of the millions, who face their parents in humiliation each day, knowing that they haven’t been able to make them proud. The film takes on an emotional note, following the firing of Jimmy from the band’s upcoming tour, forcing him into an early retirement, leaving him with no option, but to return home.
As you download Roadie, you will find yourself inadvertently falling in love with the lead character, despite knowing that he might be the prototype of what the world considers to be a ‘failure’. You can also stream the movie, if you wish to view it instantly!
