Mockumentary captures the reunion of 1960s folk trio the Folksmen as they prepare for a show at The Town Hall to memorialize a recently deceased concert promoter.
The early sequence in which the Folksmen rehearse for their reunion concert at a farm in upstate New York was inspired by the documentary The Weavers: Wasn't That a Time (1981), in which the real-life folk-music group The Weavers were shown preparing for a reunion concert at the upstate New York farm owned by one of their members, Lee Hays.
To do then now would be retro. To do then then was very now-tro, if you will.
Two minutes into the movie, as Jonathan Steinbloom says he is an organized person, one of the brown packages on his desk is askew on the long shots, but straight in the close-ups.
At the end of the film, before the traditional scrolling credits, the screen is filled with all the main actors' names. One at a time, each star's name is highlighted, in alphabetical order. The scrolling credits are in order of appearance.
