Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) delivers a comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival one of the biggest events in musical history. Unfortunately there are no concert scenes in the film, rather the focus is on Elliot, who never got to see any artists perform either. Sexual awakening (well it was the Age of Aquarius), relationships and survival are the dominant themes, washed down with a whole lot of mud and the odd joint. Some great scenes and laughs amidst the backdrop of this generation defining event.
