Synopsis

When the rock’n’roll dream ends, the hard part is waking up.

Riff was the legendary guitarist in one of the biggest rock bands in Australian history. But the 80s are gone and without music, Riff’s life has spiralled out of control.

With his new band The Sunset Six, he’s got one last chance at making it; one last chance of landing the record deal that will get him back in the game.

One problem… the band is falling apart. And it’s all his fault. As time ticks down to their imminent gig, can Riff get the band back on the rails in time?

The Sunset Six is a feel-good comedy about a band’s rocky road to musical heaven.

 

REVIEW: RIP IT UP MAGAZINE, Adelaide.
Comfy lounge chair, glass of wine, terrific film and great music! The Sunset Six is a rocking, fun, indie Australian film which trounced the awards at Indie Gems and scored at Le Bout Du Monde and St Tropez Film Festivals.
Director and co-writer Jeremy Stanford put together an exceptional cast of performers as The Sunset Six, a band waiting for ageing has-been Riff (excellently played by Greg Stone) to come up with the goods for their breakthrough. Set entirely in the rehearsal space/nightclub and surrounding alleys, we hang out with the band as they unravel. Kiki (Celarek) excels with her natural screen presence and clear driving vocals, especially in a yummy snippet of Even When I’m Sleeping and a rock-out version of Send Me An Angel with the band.
This film deserves to become a musical classic and suits the intimacy of the club lounge setting provided by The Highway.
Final Word: Rocks!
