Young@Heart
01/10/2008

If you missed it at MIFF, enjoy the magic of YOUNG@HEART at cinemas around Melbourne and throughout Regional Victoria from 16 October.

Get ready to be dazzled by the most inspirational choir you've ever listened to. Forever banishing the myth that modern music is solely the domain of the young, the New England senior citizens who form the YOUNG@HEART chorus have been delighting audiences worldwide with their covers of songs by everyone from The Clash to Coldplay. As this enchanting documentary begins, the retirees, led by their strict musical director, are rehearsing their new show, struggling with a discordant Sonic Youth number and giving fresh meaning to James Brown's "I Feel Good." What ultimately emerges is a funny and unexpectedly moving testament to the simple things these seniors value: old friendships, new challenges and a little time in the spotlight.
