2012 Film Guide: "A reunion of sorts for fans of "The Sopranos", that show's creator David Chase and star James Gandolfini team for Chase's directorial debut which takes them back to New Jersey. Instead of exploring a crime family in contemporary times however, this is a coming of age tale set in the 60's with a focus as much on the parents as there is on the teens.
The action centers around a garage rock band named The Twylight Zones and the families of the band members. Chase claims the drama will explore how post-war, post-Depression era parents gave their children as many advantages as they could and now can't help but feel a little jealous of the more liberated and adventurous future their kids are able to enjoy that they weren't while they grew up.
It may sound fairly conventional on the surface, but Chase's skill should not be underestimated considering his 'Sopranos' changed the face of cable television. Whatever title the film finally settles on, many have already begun to compare this to Cameron Crowe's masterful "Almost Famous" as a potential new benchmark for teen drama."
