Metallica Documentary ‘Mission To Lars’ Coming In June
A heart-warming Metallica documentary whose profits will go to Mencap? Sounds good to us.
‘Mission To Lars’ is an ace movie charting the attempts of one fan and his sister to meet his hero, our favourite Danish drummer, Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich.
Check out the ‘Mission To Lars’ plot synopsis below:
“Tom has Fragile X Syndrome, a sort of autism. All he’s ever wanted is to meet Lars. After 20 years and 10,000 times of asking his journalist sister, Kate, when he was going to meet Lars, she finally cracked. This is a film that looks beyond disability, and uncovers the soul of a very cool guy.
Kate and filmmaker brother, William, break Tom out of his care home in Exmouth, and hit the road, from Bristol, to Heathrow, to LA, to Las Vegas and beyond. ‘Mission to Lars’ was made by William Spicer and James Moore. Both were veterans of music and brand promos, but complete movie novices.”
So to reiterate, this is the story of a dedicated fan whose awesome sister actually tried to give him the journey and meeting of a lifetime. Fucking ace.
‘Mission To Lars’ has a small budget and so a modest theatrical release through Picturehouse cinemas in the UK in June, but profits will continue to be paid to Mencap through DVD, international sales, etc. It’s an awesome film put together for a great cause, so check out the trailer below and show your support!
