Screenings for "The Music Never Stopped", starring J.K. Simmons and Lou Taylor Pucci, will take place in theaters all over the country starting on November 16 in Boston, MA.
Based on a true story, the movie chronicles the life of a Deadhead runaway who is diagnosed with a brain tumor in the late 1960s. After surgery to remove the tumor, his brain becomes permanently damaged and he is unable to create new memories. During his rehabilitation, doctors realize that the man is most responsive to music of the psychedelic era – the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and particularly the Grateful Dead.
Even though he is unaware the era of his music has long passed, the effect is remarkable, and he begins to be able to have conversations and express himself. Although his father loathes rock and roll, he is determined to forge new memories and salvage his relationship with his son. Thus, the music of The Dead helps unite the family and reawaken the man after the severe damage.
The film features music by The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and more.
