Beacon Film Society: Everyman’s Journey
Tue, Aug 5, 2014
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Friends, sometimes we just need films that inspire without catastrophe, make us feel good without adolescent prurience, and are just plain damn fun! So…
What happens when someone who was literally singing for their supper in a third-world country is suddenly dropped into the circus that is arena-sized rock ’n’ roll? In this highly enjoyable new summer release, Everyman’s Journey follows the real life rock ’n’ roll fairy tale of Arnel Pined, who was plucked from YouTube to become the front man for one of the most iconic American rock bands in history, Journey.
A Cinderella story at heart, Arnel, having overcome a lifetime’s worth of hardships must now navigate the immense pressures of replacing a legendary singer and leading a world-renowned band on their most extensive world tour in years.
