The Wrecking Crew
If you love music from the 1960s to the early 70s you need to watch this one. It’s about the studio musicians that were part of some great music most of us grew-up with. Like the likes of Cher, Brian Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Hal Blaine, Don Randi, Herb Alpert, Roger McGuinn, Earl Palmer and more.
To my surprise, I enjoyed it. Good direction, well acted and even the sad moments didn’t overpower the film; it balance out with some nice unexpected humor. Cate Blanchett is wickedly good.
Kenneth Branagh directs the film with a screenplay by Chris Weitz and a cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgård, Derek Jacobi, Nonso Anozie, Holliday Grainger, Lily James, Richard Madden, and Sophie McShera.
