Enjoyable, low budgeted movie with solid acting and good music. Based on a true story as well. Inspiring.

Very good movie! It demonstrates the Power of music.(ANY GENRE) It gives new meaning to the term "Memory Music".

A love letter to the music of the 60s - especially the Grateful Dead. Great performances all around, the kind of movie that flies under the radar but when discovered it's a lot of fun

Enjoyed this film ... and really hadn't expected to! Had listened to books on CD by Dr. Sachs and, quite honestly, had tired of his patient stories. In fact, the issue of confidentiality bothered me even though he was not using actual names. Nonetheless, I ordered this DVD and my husband and I watched it. We are 77 and can relate to the father in the story. It is a positive story of family reconciliation and, BTW, also contains a lot of good music.

Uninspiring tale and not much science behind the study to speak of. The shoddy makeup for the actors betrayed their ages when they were supposed to be 20 or more years younger.

The musical components of the movie are good - how could they not be! - but the story itself, and the editing, make this a bit simplistic and manipulative. I wasn't a fan. Obviously! I read a book, glanced up now and then and correctly predicted what would happen, then just listened to the musical bits.

Good movie. Interesting plot based on a true story. Nice emotional story. I recommend it.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Father: Son, if you don't go to college, the only village you'll see will have thatched roofs and no plumbing (as a soldier in Vietnam) ...
===
Father: In my music, a guy likes a gal, he tells her. He says, "You are the promised kiss of springtime that makes the lonely winter seem long." It's plain English as far as I can tell. This is-- I don't know. Truckin'? What is that?
Son: Well, the Dead grew up on the road traveling from place to place, taking one road after another. And the thing is, on the road, you never really know where you're going or what's gonna happen when you arrive, so you just experience the ride. And then every single day is a different adventure. You know, the-- the journey is the destination.
