The Perfect Age of Rock'n'Roll movie scene

Kevin Zegers steps up to the mic in The Perfect Age of Rock'n'Roll.

The music-filled independent drama film The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll tells a tale of friendship and betrayal on a backdrop of the titular brand of thrashing, youth-oriented music.

Rock star Spyder (Kevin Zegers, Frozen) has achieved fame and fortune with a smash hit debut album. This success, however, is built on the near-Faustian pact that capitalized on the genius of his long lost childhood best friend and band mate, Eric Genson (Jason Ritter, TV’s The Event). After his sophomore effort flops, Spyder retreats to his small hometown and reconnects with Eric after a seven-year estrangement, prompting the pair to recall their youthful ambitions and re-examine the choices they’ve made. The result is a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny.

The first feature film written and directed by Scott D. Rosenbaum, The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll also stars Taryn Manning (TV’s Hawaii Five-0), Peter Fonda (Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry), Lukas Haas (Inception), Kelly Lynch (Cocktail) and Billy Dee Williams (The Empire Strikes Back).

On the music side, the movie is fueled by a soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy & The Stooges, Aerosmith, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin’ Wolf, Jane’s Addiction and more.

The 2009 film received a very low-key limited release to U.S. theaters in August 2011 and picked up a handful of positive critics’ reviews.

Here’s the rock-filled trailer:
