Anvil! The Story of Anvil

3

Get ready to wave your lighters in the air...

Irresistible – if you will – rockumentary shadowing the halting career revival of a torpid troupe of fiftysomething Canadian cock-rockers.

Director/fan Sacha Gervasi kicks in with a flurry of Tap riffs, then fades down the laughter and crafts an intimate tale of overripe men doggedly chasing a dream despite being out of date and time.

The hurting digs deep, but hang in for an emotional payoff that’ll have you twitching to thrust a lighter in the air.
