Arcade Fire’s critically acclaimed ‘The Suburbs’ is basis for new film directed by Spike Jonze.
CMU reports Arcade Fire members, Win & Will Butler, co-wrote the film called “Scenes from the Suburbs”. It makes its debut this weekend at the Berlin International Film Festival and stars: Sam Dillon, Zoe Graham, Zeke Jarmon, Paul Pluymen, Ashlin Williamson.
Here’s the official description:
“I wish I could remember every little moment. But I can’t. Why do I only remember the moments that I do. I wonder what happens to the others.” A group of suburban youths. Back then, in the summer, so long ago. They couldn’t leave town because outside the country was at war and the military controlled life and all gateways. The teenagers wander aimlessly about town. Winter is a long way off. And love and longing and friendship still mean – everything”.
(personally makes me think of movies like ‘the Outsiders’, like the album does)
The Canadian band will perform on the Grammy’s this Sunday night and maybe make an acceptance speech as they are up for Album of the Year, Best Rock Performance (Ready to Start) and Best Alternative Album.
