Cinematique Presents: "May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers"

Oct 5, 2017

Monday, October 16th, to Wednesday, October 18th on Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre. Monday to Wednesday the show will start at 7pm with an additional showing starting at 4pm. 

From longtime fans Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio and filmed with extraordinary access over the course of more than two years, May It Last is an intimate portrait of the acclaimed North Carolina band The Avett Brothers, charting their decade-and-a-half rise, while chronicling their present-day collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on the multi-Grammy-nominated album “True Sadness.” With the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong bond and unique creative partnership, as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business.

From the critics:

“An excellent blend of musical behind-the-scenes, open-hearted interviews, and performance.”

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

“May It Last isn’t just a portrait of a band, it’s a scrapbook of a family, one that’s thorough, funny, and full of larger-than-life stories that will tickle the funny bone as often as they bruise the heart.”

Michael Roffman, Consequence of Sound
