MUMBAI:NDTV Lumière will be airing the musical time-piece Honeydripper. Filmed and set in Alabama, Honeydripper is a musical fable, which circles around the owner of a blues club that is failing until, he hires a young electric guitarist in a last ditch effort to draw crowds to his fading club. The movie is being screened at PVR Cinema in Mumbai.
Set in the 1950’s, the movie is a moving tale about Tyrone Purvis (Danny Glover) who owns the Honeydripper lounge bar that is going down the dumps. To drum-up business, he enlists the services of the legendary Guitar Sam. What he gets, instead, will forever change his Saturday nights, but threatens to raise demons from the past that could destroy his future. Directed by John Sayles, Honeydripper has won the Best Screenplay award at the 2007 San Sebastián Film Festival, and the Outstanding Independent Film Award at the 2008 NAACP Image Awards.
Regarded by many as the ‘Godfather of American Independent Cinema’, the movie stars Danny Glover as Tyron Purvis and Lisa Gay Hamilton as Delilah
