When you make it as big as David Chase, you're often at liberty to pursue the projects you really want to pursue, regardless of budgetary or quality concerns. The recent work of Chateau Sandler seems to be an exception to this rule, but the former statement is really just an unecessary low-blow designed to stretch out this into, while also providing some sort of sh*tty analogy that has very, very little to do with the dopeness at hand.
This is a coming of age story about a bunch of 1960's kids from the Dirty Jerz who ditch their life of suburban monotony for dreams of making it big as a rock band in the big city. It's David Chase's feature film directorial debut, and the father of the protagonist (John Magaro) is played by Tony Soprano. "Not Fade Away" is set for a December 21st release.
