Trailer for Roadie.
Canned from a 20-year job as roadie for Blue Oyster Cult, Jimmy is broke and desperate. With nowhere else to go, he returns home to Forest Hills, Queens to visit his aging mother, where a wild night with some hard-partying high school friends shows him that some things never change. From director Michael Cuesta, ROADIE features powerful performances from Ron Eldard, Bobby Cannavale, Jill Hennessy and a refreshingly eclectic 70s hard rock soundtrack.
For years, Jimmy has lived his childhood dream: being a roadie for his heroes, Blue Oyster Cult. But the bands Arena-Rock glory days are a distant memory. Country fairs and club gigs pay the bills. And Jimmy has become a casualty of these learner times.
A prodigal son with a beer gut and a classic rock pedigree, Eldard's Jimmy Testagrossa has been touring with classic rock/art metal band Blue Oyster Cult since the 80s. "Aayyy, Jimmy Testicles!!" amped-up Bobby (Cannavale), who's now married to aspiring singer-songwriter Nikki (Hennessy), will shout more than once, with varying degrees of love, menace and rage. Nikki will break Jimmy's heart - and ours - with her voice, because she's really pretty good. And Jimmy - well, Jimmy will explode.
