Description

This Film Should Be Played Loud: See new, classic and rare concert films on the big screen.

From Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio comes this extraordinary portrait of The Avett Brothers that captures the behind-the-scenes of the recording sessions of their acclaimed album True Sadness. As they work on the record with superstar producer Rick Rubin, May It Last follows two years in the band’s life, and the ups and downs of marriage, divorce, parenthood and illness, all while having to navigate their rise in the music industry. Full of heart and insight, this is as much of a documentary about life and responsibility as it is about the music and it beautifully captures the intersection where they all come together.
