Comedy, Musical
On the fringes of the much-discussed 1969 Woodstock rock festival, a young man named Elliot Teichberg (Demetri Martin) helps his immigrant parents turn their failing motel into rock-fest headquarters USA — and also sorts out his own life — in this perceptive, seductive valentine to America by director Ang Lee and screenwriter James Schamus, the team who gave us Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain. Every single acting role is a polished jewel, but special mention to Imelda Staunton as Elliot’s high-powered, old-country Yiddishe Momma, Liev Schreiber as a burly drag-queen bouncer, and Emile Hirsch as a flashback-plagued Namvet. It’s all about living in the moment and connecting with people, and it’s a masterpiece to stand with the best work of Frank Capra, Preston Sturges, and Robert Altman (110 min.).
