In the rural Alabama of 1950, Tyrone, piano player and owner of the Honeydripper Lounge hopes to save the place from closure by hiring the biggest blues guitar player of the moment, Guitar Sam. Just a couple of days before the much-awaited performance, Sonny, a young guitar-player, arrives in town looking for work. He asks Tyrone for help, only to be arrested by the local sheriff and sent to pick cotton. On the day of the show, the train arrives and Guitar Sam is nowhere to be found. Tyrone has to take drastic action not to lose this big make-or-break opportunity, save the club and help launch a new musical era.
BIOGRAPHY
His first movie, Return of the Secaucus 7 (1980), helped to launch the American independent film movement. Other films by him are: Lianna (1983), City of Hope (1991), Passion Fish (1992), Lone Star (1996), Men with Guns (1988), which competed at San Sebastian, Sunshine State (2002) and Silver City (2004), participant in the Official Selection at San Sebastian. This same Festival dedicated a retrospective to him in 1994. Sayles will receive a tribute this year at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
