I missed this documentary at Sundance this year, so I'm thrilled that it's coming out this Friday in limited release. The trailer alone for Young @ Heart brings tears to my eyes — but not sad tears. The film follows the Young@Heart Chorus of Northampton, Massachusetts which consists of about two dozen senior citizens who sing covers of rock, punk and R&B classics with the help of their choir director Bob Cilman. They perform for everyone from inmates at a nearby prison to sold-out crowds at the local concert hall.
I'll post my review of the movie later this week, but just the trailer is totally inspiring so read more.
