This award-winning documentary follows a choir of older people in Northampton Mass. through a tough schedule.. And it’s not just tough because the songs are unfamiliar to the singers, featuring the best of the Clash and the Ramones. Some of them need oxygen just to get through a rehearsal; one or two are terminally ill. But they still manage the 71 rhythmic repetitions of ‘can’ in the Pointer Sisters’ Yes we can can.
