Long December (2023) Heartland Film Festival 2023

I want to get the sound track to this film. Full of magnificent new songs and a couple of kickass versions of Christmas songs LONG DECEMBER is a film that is going to stay with me for a long time.

The film is the story of a singer contemplating what do to with his career has a potential boost to his career during a melancholy December. He has a new baby and responsibilities that are making the life on the road less attractive. When he gets an offer for a gig that could propel him forward he has to consider what he really wants.

Shot in a loving style that puts us in the apartments and the clubs where the film is set this is less like watching a movie and more like just hanging out with friends. We are traveling around with the people we know. It has one of the best song scores I’ve seen in a while.

Actually this would make a fantastic double feature with Patrick Meaney’s THE BRINK OF, another film about performers.

LONG DECEMBER is a joy. See it.
