Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives

Movie Summary

Director:
Jean-Claude Lord
Released:
1989
Rating:
PG

Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives is the 1989 sequel to the cult favorite original, directed by Jean-Claude Lord (Visiting Hours). The story of Eddie Wilson (Michael Pare), a boy from the north Jersey shore who in the late 1960s became the greatest rock star to ever live, and who was believed to have been dead for the past twenty years, suddenly re-emerges when he finds out that his former record label is about to release the unreleased last album tracks that he allegedly lost his life over. The album that the record label would not release in 1969, because the execs thought the tracks were trash, are now thought to be a work of genius. Ironically, because 20 years later the album tracks that were recorded in '69 are now thought to be visionary of what rock n roll would eventually evolve into. Eddie puts together a band of musicians from the small Montreal community he has been 'hiding out' in for the past twenty years under an assumed name. And along with his girlfriend, a struggling little rich, French Canadian artiste, hits the road on a northern U.S. tour that will culminate in the return of Eddie Wilson and the New Cruisers at Madison Square Garden.
