As the New York Film Festival's Centerpiece selection this year, we're soon going to be seeing a lot more from David Chase's feature debut, "Not Fade Away." But to get the ball rolling, a brand new one sheet has arrived for the movie.

Mixing a little bit of romance with a rock 'n' roll vibe found with the instruments in the background (though we worry about that trunk slamming down on that bass drum), it's perhaps the best indication yet of the nostalgic tone the movie is going for. Banking on three up-and-comers for the lead roles -- Jack Huston, Will Brill and John Magaro -- the coming-of-age story follows three Italian-American kids who form a rock band in the 1960s. Of course, this will create a bit of generational culture clash all set against the backdrop of the rock 'n' roll revolution. Here's the NYFF synopsis

The time is the mid-1960s, on the cusp of the Summer of Love. The place, suburban New Jersey. The music, 100 percent pure rock and roll. For his feature filmmaking debut, The Sopranos creator David Chase has crafted a wise, tender and richly atmospheric portrait of a group of friends trying to do what so many awkward suburban kids of the time dreamed of doing: form their own rock band. And these guys are good, fronted by a preternaturally gifted singer-songwriter (terrific newcomer John Magaro) who’s a dead ringer for the young Bob Dylan, even if dad (James Gandolfini) doesn’t take kindly to seeing junior strut around in long hair and Cuban heels. Masterfully capturing the era’s conflicting attitudes and ideologies, all set to a killer soundtrack produced by the legendary Steven Van Zandt, Not Fade Away just might be the best coming-of-age movie since Barry Levinson’s Diner—and one of the best rock movies ever.

Co-starring Brad Garrett, Bella Heathcote, James Gandolfini and Lisa Lampanelli, "Not Fade Away" screens this weekend at NYFF and opens in select cities on December 21st. Full poster below. [IMPA]
