Break like the Wind and head off to Stonehenge with the wildest rock group on the circuit – Spinal Tap. This uproariously funny mockumentary chronicles the second act of an aging band of heavy metal demi-gods relegated to carnival stages and canceled shows and album covers. As they tour the country and attempt to release their newest album, the band must weather the storm of interpersonal upsets, exploding drummers, miniature monoliths, airport metal detector mishaps, and skirmishes between themselves, their representation, and their record company. Largely improvised and jam-packed full of comedic brilliance, this remains one of the funniest films ever made. So, join us in the metal mayhem with all your best bandmates!
