This Thursday, Los Alamos moviegoers will have a chance to catch a free screening of “A Mighty Wind” at Mesa Public Library.
Christopher Guest’s 2003 mockumentary takes a spoofy look at the folk scene with a “Behind the Music”-esque presentation about three folk ensembles preparing for a PBS special.
Bob Balaban, as the son of the recently deceased folk icon Irving Steinbloom, has decided his father needs memorializing on TV. He arranges to have some of the elder Steinbloom’s favorite musicians perform on the show.
Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer play The Folksmen, a trio of singers with deep feelings, bald heads and a tendency to bicker, hen-like. One of them has a creamy, soft face.
Parker Posey, Jane Lynch and John Michael Higgins play members of The New Main Street Singers. Poser’s character is an uber-sweet former street urchin, while Higgins and Lynch play a married couple with a rather unconventional back-story.
Eugene Levy and Catharine O’Hara are Mitch and Mickey, the symbol of true love, the auditory species of a rose.
