JERSEY BOYS – A MASTERPIECE! ONE OF THE GREATEST FILMS IN YEARS

by on June 27, 2014

And here is a Big Surprise — Clint Eastwood produced and directed — and I believe that his movie will be at the top of the Oscars. Not only was I thrilled by the Jersey Boys – they also bowled me over with the well-plotted outstanding singing. I’d see it twice or more.

I’ve seen many versions of the Stage play – but nothing compares with this movie version. And Gee Wiz — was I enchanted. The music and visuals made us laugh – and the singing was stunning. The audience loved it, and I loved it – there was extreme jiggling in the seats.

What a knockout cast this is. There is Vincent Piazza, Christopher Walken and John Lloyd Young as Frankie Valli. I was dazzled and overwhelmed with the absorbing and powerful filmmaking.

THE JERSEY BOYS have a well-plotted movie. It’s an unforgettable rare movie that is brilliant, exciting and deeply moving.
