This 2004 movie (not related to the 1948 film of the same name) features a set of rejuv’s in a halfway house who are jump started into a music career with a chance encounter with a severely austic piano genius. They play some rockin’ blues which really drives the drama on. It’s not serious drama but certainly does qualify for good family enterntainment, especially if your family has a musical bent.
The character Wesley (William Lee Scott) who finds and befriends Vernon the piano player (Lucas Black) has a back story with a blues man (cameo’d by one of my favourite Blues men: Taj Mahal) that I think is artfully left subtle. The fact that he passes on this unidentified but obviously powerful influence is one of the best parts of the film for me.
