Hank Williams pioneered and pretty much invented what we know today as country music. At the peak of his career, he was acknowledged to be the greatest singer-songwriter in American history. But after a meteoric rise to record and radio super-stardom in the late 1940's, the man had made a train wreck of his life. Drugs, alcohol, and a hair-trigger temper had ended two marriages, ruined a host of friendships and made the tortured genius a virtual untouchable in the music business. So at the end of 1952, Hank Williams gathered what was left of his physical strength to make things right, and begin the long road back. He booked New Years shows in West Virginia and Ohio, and hired a local kid who didn't even own a radio, much less know who this legend was, to drive him there from Montgomery Alabama. Inspired by the mysterious final days Hank Williams' mercurial life, The Last Ride is the story of that final drive through the bleak Appalachian countryside of 1950's America. A lonely two-man odyssey; a boy coming of age, and a man leaving this world way before his time, a victim of his own abuses.

        As the title suggests, Brother, Can You Spare a Dollar explores the socioeconomic realities of the Great Depression era and compares it to our current recession-ridden society. Through contemporary interviews and archival materials the film recreates the 1930's - a period when most people had low expectations regarding material comforts, but high expectations in terms of personal responsibility and community. We travel across the decades to site the growing influence of consumerism, technology, and mass media and illustrate how our higher standards of living were garnered at the expense of our sense of community, security and fellowship. We study the Occupy Movement and it's potential to transform the "Me" Generation, trace the development of the "virtual" society, and speculate on the future social impact of frivolous technologies. -- (C) Quad Cinema
