Aro Recommended Greetings From Tim Buckley


USA 2012, 99 minutes
Dir. Daniel Algrant
Rating: [M] Sex scenes & offensive language
Genres: Drama, Music


“A quiet movie of small rewards, made by a whole lot of talented people taking a risk and pulling it off with humble aplomb.”~ABC Radio

Aroview: Avoiding the simplistic trappings of the music 'biopic', this is a sensitively handled elegy for the late Jeff Buckley, here portrayed with remarkable accuracy and conviction by Penn Badgley in the lead up to his legendary 1991 tribute concert to father Tim.

Careful not to load events with too much fictional narrative, the estrangement of the father-son relationship is underscored by discreet flashbacks to the mid '60s when Tim Buckley first found success as a folk troubadour, a story that perhaps demands its own movie portrait.
