“Everybody remembers it how they need to.”
I remember hearing these songs on the radio during my childhood and having no clue what they “meant,” but dancing with my mum around the living room. “Oh What A Night” “Sherry Baby” “Big Girls” – all informed my childhood and I had no clue about the content. I remember being confused at how oldies could sound so contemporary. And I still know most of the words. 🙂
I realize this tagline for the movie is not intended for my childhood memories, but it still applies. This was my favorite.
From director Clint Eastwood comes the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical “Jersey Boys.”
The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You,” and many more.
These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe.
Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group’s biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. Oscar® winner Christopher Walken (“The Deer Hunter”) stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo.
Oscar® winner Eastwood (“Million Dollar Baby,” “Unforgiven“) directed “Jersey Boys” from a screenplay and musical book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, song music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The film is produced by Eastwood, Graham King and Robert Lorenz, with Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tim Moore, Tim Headington, Brett Ratner, James Packer and Steven Mnuchin serving as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team was led by Oscar®-nominated director of photography Tom Stern (“Changeling”); Oscar®-nominated production designer James J. Murakami, (“Changeling”); Academy Award®-editor Joel Cox (“Unforgiven“) and editor Gary D. Roach; and costume designer Deborah Hopper.
