Acclaimed writer-director John Sayles brings the birth of rock 'n' roll to life with electrifying effect, with Danny Glover heading up a stellar cast.

Drama 2007 124 mins

Director: John Sayles



Acclaimed writer-director John Sayles (Lone Star, Passion Fish) brings the birth of rock 'n' roll to life with electrifying effect. Tyrone Purvis (Danny Glover) is a bar owner down on his luck. To drum-up business, he enlists the services of the legendary Guitar Sam. What he gets will forever change his Saturday nights, but threatens to raise demons from the past that could destroy his future.

With a stunning soundtrack and a stellar cast, including Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, Stacey Keach and Mary Steenburgen, as well as performances by Motown legend Dr. Mable John, Keb' Mo' and rising star Gary Clark Jr, Honeydripper is a rock 'n' roll story as it has never been told before.
