Rating: PG-13

Set in a 1950’s Alabama, this passionate film about the birth of rock ‘n’ roll takes protagonist Tyrone Purvis (Danny Glover) in search of a miracle to save his roadhouse from bankruptcy. When a grand notion of recruiting regional celebrity and blues guitar stars turns into a suspenseful Saturday night he is left with the talents of one man equipped with a guitar like none ever seen: carved from a solid block of wood, and, unbelievably, electric to save the juke joint.

Honeydripper is an inspiring example of the ability cinema has to transcend boundaries of culture and era.
