honeydripper', the acclaimed new film written, directed and edited by john sayles, revisits the genesis of rock 'n' roll - namely '50s rural blues from the deep south. The story depicts a second chance for an aging bluesman, the kick-off to a young guitar turk's career and the rise of rock 'n' roll itself. The movie features an all-star cast including danny glover, charles s. Dutton, lisa gay hamilton, stacy keach, mary steenburgen, yaya decosta and sean patrick thomas. The 15-song soundtrack features stax records veteran mable john ("no matter how she done it") along with legendary artists memphis slim ("bertha may") and lil green ("why don't you do right?)," as well as actor danny glover performing "goin' down slow." The film introduces actor/musician gary clark jr., about whom texas music magazine wrote, "probably the most talented texas guitarist since a certain srv. (stevie ray vaughan)".
