The story of Elliot Tiber and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. When Elliot hears that a neighboring town has pulled the permit on a hippie music festival, he calls the producers thinking he could drum up some much-needed business for his parents' run-down motel. Three weeks later, half a million people are on their way to his neighbor’s farm in White Lake, New York, and Elliot finds himself swept up in a generation-defining experience that would change his life–and American culture–forever.

Interesting script and topic about a man's struggle with growing old, reclaiming his youth by living like a sleazy prick, the kind that can profile a person in a crowded room, but who inevitably ends up alone and getting the shit kicked out of him. Great cameos from Sarandon, Danny DeVito, and the young Imogen Poots (for playing that precocious young C**nt so well!)

Hannah G (ru) wrote: Another moving doc from HBO. Grenier is surprisingly quirky, giving the gusto to the film. Overall, it's a great story, as well as incredibly illuminating to the process of un-estrangement. Not the most unique doc style or technique, yet Grenier's presence pulled it off. He doesn't have to act; Grenier is odd enough to work.
