Chasing the band around America, Tom's disabilities combine with family dysfunction and backstage heavies to thwart the mission at every turn. But as they close in on Lars, Tom starts to shine and display a new side...

The literal and emotional voyage that gives this sweet, touching and often funny doc its shape resists any temptation to overegg the self-discovery pudding.

The peripheral interviews with the extended Spicer family are as compelling as the central quest; this is a film with rare honesty and nuance in a field that frequently feels queasy.

It will not teach you very much about either autism or Metallica, but you will leave the theater smiling.

The film that reduced Lemmy to tears will have a similar affect on you. Just lovely.
