For fans of the Buckleys' work, the movie capitalizes on the mythic quality of an estranged familial relationship and teh Buckley's respective music careers. For newcomers to the story, Greetings is still a painfully revealing look at two similar men who didn't know each other. "Going into the film, I knew nothing about the Buckleys aside from their most famous songs -- but getting into their backstory, it's an interesting look at father-and-son dynamics and the events that inspired generations of musicians," says Sie programming director Keith Garcia.
Greetings From Tim Buckley begins its one-week engagement tonight at the Sie, 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Tickets are $7 to $10 and can be purchased at the box office, online, or by calling 303-595-3456. For more information, visit denverfilm.org
