Teen Spirit by former teen idol
Kathleen Hanna went to Grant High School in Portland's Hollywood suburb with Mike Scheckla, the Portland Trail Blazer's mascot, The Hippy Fan, and the Water Bureau Einstein of software, Erik Sten.
Sini says: "I'll be doing a Q&A after and I think we'll have quests from the film in attendance."
Hear me now and believe me latter. Kathleen must be coming home to the hood in Hollywood for Christmas. If you doubt that likelihood, then just don't go then.
I saw this last night. And your review pretty much says it all! You are wise, Alison.
I think that's the director, not Kathleen. And Corin Tucker. Which is still cool.
Producer: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Killoran, Ryan Kavanaugh, Ridley Scott, Michael Costigan, Tucker Tooley, Ron Burkle, Jason Colbeck, Robbie Brenner, Brooklyn Weaver, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Christian Mercuri, Joe Gatta and Jeff Waxman

Tickets are going fast, please buy in advance!
oh boy! Lets go see this just so we can see a bad movie. Yes that's a mediocre review there.
That is nice that you liked it, Eric, but by accusing me of sleeping through it, you're ignoring the movie's very substantial problems. Why was Bono in this movie to begin with? Why did the Rolling Stones and Lynyrd Skynyrd eat up the lion's share of screen time when artists like Arthur Conley, the Staple Singers, Laura Lee, James & Bobby Purify, and R.B. Greaves are barely mentioned, if at all? Why did the film's only complete live musical performance come from Alicia Keys, who has nothing to do with any of it? The movie was junk. For example, you barely hear a snippet of Arthur Alexander's "You Better Move On," which was the first hit to come out of Muscle Shoals and remains one of the most important records of all time, while "Sweet Home Alabama" (which was recorded in GEORGIA) is lovingly played in its entirety over the end credits.
Ned Lannamann, You must have fallen asleep during the movie and had to make this drivel up. If you are going to make it look like you listed every one of the stories then you should list them. There was a theater full of people that liked it when I saw it. They, at least, were awake. So were the hundreds who passed the word in earlier screenings and said it was good. Too bad they don't have the bully pulpit. The movie's stories are about the history of the Muscle Shoals sounds and the grit it took to bring it to the world. Maybe you just don't get grits...it's a southern thing. I saw it in Michigan at the 2013 Waterfront Film Festival with a professor of film who liked it. The audiences here were serious film buffs who had what it takes to appreciate the story and the film. I think your readers should make up their own minds since we obviously disagree here. Hopefully Portland moviegoers will ignore the critic there and be able to enjoy the story anyway. It should not be missed. I have no affiliation with the movie or with any of the people connected with the film. I just enjoyed it and think others will too if they are not misled by a critical review. I'm glad I saw it.
Bonus: You could probably read the (very good book) in about the same time it would take to see the movie.
