Paean to a City, a Team, a Venue and a Performer
Met fans, Billy fans and New Yorkers of a certain age will get their share of goose bumps and lumps in their throat watching this words and musical paean to The City and its soul.
The evolution and maturing of Billy and the Mets, along with its self-destructive ups and downs, is expertly handled by the film makers.
The insights into the life of Billy Joel, the impact of urban sprawl, Robert Moses and working class are set to the music of Billy, along with Tony Bennett, Paul McCartney, Garth Brooks and others.
You don't HAVE to be a NY Met fan, a Billy fan or even a New Yorker to watch this engrossing documentary.
