The 60s. Young people are crazy for rock music, but radio stations are spinning pops and classics around the clock. A company of desperate DJs, led by Quentin (Bill Nye), set sail on a ship out to sea to delight Britain with an endless stream of rock music while remaining elusive to those who would try to stop them.

"And I'll tell you - beautiful! It was unexpected to see so many famous actors..... and somewhat similar in style to Radio Day, which may even have been the inspiration. But anyway - the music is great! And the story", — MarkRaffer.

Странная подборка. Нет, всё про музыкантов, но критерии общности сильно размыты. Байопики соседствуют с просто комедиями и просто фильмами о музыке. Будто надергали первое попавшееся без какого либо размышления. Хотя можно при минимуме времени сформировать действительно ровные подборки.

@Irish_Ethan: с Вэлом Килмером? Ну да, хорошо он вписался в роль, но байопиков ведь реально много. Сид и Нэнси, например или там Голос улиц про доктора Дрэ и прочих из Комптона. Но всё же - это весьма специфические фильмы, как по мне. А вот то, что никто не вспомнил "Высоцкий. Спасибо что живой" - вот это благодарочка!
