Critically acclaimed, MISSION TO LARS, is the story of two siblings’ (Kate and William Spicer) attempt to fulfil their brother Tom’s dream of meeting rock God Lars Ulrich of Metallica. Tom Spicer has Fragile X Syndrome, a form of autism, and has a dream to meet his hero which his siblings promise to make happen, with hopes of good times and bonding on the road trip across America. But Tom’s disabilities, a dysfunctional family, and heavy metal’s labyrinthine backstage world thwart the mission at every turn.

My sister in Law is autistic, so me and the misses were keen to see this for two reasons, and I'm not ashamed to say that at the end of the film the pair of us were blubbing like babies with massive smiles on our faces, a beautiful, beautiful thing indeed.
The band, the crew... What a stone cold set of gentlemen who were genuinely and wholly pleased and keen to embrace Tom's lifelong goal of 'Meet, Lars'.
Tom, long may you continue to rock out with yer thingy out, my fellow defender of the faith. You are awesome!!
This sounds like a relatively simple task right? Hmmm, not so, every Metallica fan and their dog wants to meet Lars it seems and Tom has panic attacks, wild mood swings and singular obsessions, so it’s going to take timing and patience to get this dream fixed up right.
As well as the Lars aspect of the documentary we get to see the Spicer siblings perform their quest in the USA with family bonding thrown into the mix. Kate and Will also want to raise awareness of Fragile X Syndrome and the profits from the film go to MENCAP (a damn worthy cause in my book.) They also during their trip interview an expert on Fragile X Syndrome, which is interesting but could probably have done with a bit more information, as not everybody has a background in psychology like myself.
Then there’s the “reality show” aspect of the documentary, where we get to see the numerous setbacks, family dilemmas and arguing among the siblings, heck it reminded me of my family!
It’s fantastic that Metallica co-operated with this and for me even more fantastic the profits go to MENCAP. I really enjoyed watching this documentary and it was great to see Kate and her brothers just like a regular family.
On a final note if you’re wondering where you’ve seen Kate before then it’s probably on Masterchef as she’s a leading food critic and journalist. I’ve been told she’s a “tough act” when it comes to dining reviews but now I’ve seen this documentary I think she’s just a big softy at heart, well with her family at least ;-)

I was interested in the man with Fragile X but the film was more about his brother and sister than him. Read morePublished on 21 Mar. 2015 by Swifty
