The surprising, delightful, entertaining, and inspiring members of the Young@Heart Chorus, a New England senior citizens chorus, has charmed audiences worldwide with their renditions of songs by everyone from the Clash to Coldplay. As Stephen Walker’s critically acclaimed documentary begins, the retirees, led by their demanding musical director, are rehearsing their new show, struggling with Sonic Youth’s dissonant rock anthem "Schizophrenia," and giving new meaning to James Brown’s "I Feel Good." What ultimately emerges is a funny and unexpectedly moving testament to friendship, creative inspiration, and expectations defied.
