I shall start off by saying, I agree with everything the previous reviewer has said. To add to/expand on this, it was well acted and very convincing; if you didn't know the soundtrack is not Buddy Holly's original, you wouldn't easily guess.
You can really feel the whole era of the 50s in this film, and it's fascinating of course to think of the historical context, eg a white man breaking through in a black man's musical world.
Buddy Holly changed the face of rock n roll, and of music per se, in such a short time; we can only imagine what wonders were left to unfold had he not been so tragically and suddenly curtailed.
A must for fans of the 50s, rock n roll and of Buddy Holly.
