Magnolia Pictures has provided ComingSoon.net with an exclusive clip from Miguel (L.I.E.) Cuesta’s drama Roadie, starring Ron Eldard as Jimmy Testagross, a longtime roadie for the ’70s rock band Blue Oyster Cult, who finds himself returning home to Forest Hills, Queens after being let go. Having not been home in many years, he finds himself trying to reconnect with his aging mother, as well as an old flame Nicole (Jill Hennessy) who is now married to one of Jimmy’s high school rivals (Bobby Cannavale).
The clip provided to us, which you can watch below, has Jimmy encountering Nicole and her husband for the first time in a local watering hole where he learns she’s now a singer and songwriter whose musical dreams have been held back by her decision to stay in Forest Hills, which is quite a contrast to Jimmy’s years on the road.
Roadie is available on Video On Demand platforms starting today and will get a limited theatrical release starting January 6, 2012.
