Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio’s film, May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers, is coming to Nashville for one night only.
May it Last is more than a music documentary. According to the film’s official website, it’s “a meditation on family, love and the passage of time.” The film premiered at SXSW’s film festival this year — and it walked away a winner. It snagged the 24 Beats Per Second Audience Award.
The award-winning documentary is showing exclusively in theaters for one night. On Sept. 12, it will be on the big screen nationwide and that includes Nashville. Franklin’s Thoroughbred 20, Nashville’s Opry Mills and Green Hills theaters and the AMC Murfreesboro 16 are on the list. If you’re not in Nashville or are a little further out, you can see the full list of venues here.
The film, which is an Apatow Production in association with RadicalMedia, follows The Avett Brothers for more than two years. It shows their rise to mainstream success over the years. It also chronicles their collaboration with producer Rick Rubin for their 2016 album True Sadness. May It Last uses the recording as a theme throughout the film while showing the real lives of the brothers, something fans don’t usually get to witness. They undergo marriage, divorce, sickness, parenthood and music business struggles in the visual.
Tickets to the film are on sale now via participating theaters.
