An overnight success, twenty years in the making...

David Carradine (Kill Bill, Bound for Glory), Michael Maloney and Mariel Hemingway (Manhattan, Deconstructing Harry) come together in this satirical buddy drama set in the dizzying whirl of fame at the heights of the music business. To screenwriters Scott Fivelson and Junior Burke, and director Mark Archer (prize-winning producer of In The Company Of Men), it's all part of the American Reel.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet singer-songwriter James Lee Springer (Carradine), whose uncompromising style has held him back for the past 20 years. "Why did it take you so long to make it?" is the question that keeps coming back at him. Springer wryly counters, "I keep punchin' out record executives."

With a great musical score by Thom Bishop, featuring songs written and performed by David Carradine, American Reel touches the mind and the heart in the way that it asks, "When your dream finally comes true, is it still worth it?"
