Bus Palladium

France | 2010 | 100 mn CAST Marc-André Grondin, Arthur Dupont, Géraldine Pilhas, François Civil Named after a Paris nightclub that had its heyday in the '70s and '80s, the directing debut by Brown alumni and writer Christopher Thompson (Avenue Montaigne, Change of Plans) tells the irresistibly charming tale of a rowdy group of would-be rockers trying to make it big in the music business. Close friends since childhood, they have talent and ambition. Their rock band, Lust, is enjoying growing success, but their individual aspirations cast uncertainty over their joint future. The arrival of Laura in their life will upset this precarious balance even more. Jealousy, competition, and duels ensue, complicating friendships and pending fame alike. Featuring a soundtrack including music from the Rolling Stones, Blondie and David Bowie, Bus Palladium will put you smack in the middle of the '80s and keep you rockin' in your seat.
