It’s been five years since The Sopranos finale decided to adhere to that old Neil Young maxim, “It’s better to cut abruptly than to fade away.” Now, the series’ visionary creator David Chase is finally back—and with a movie, no less. Not Fade Away follows the tensions, joys, and pitfalls of teenage rock and roll in the 1960s, and reunites Chase with his Sopranos leading man. James Gandolfini plays the father of a rebellious Jersey boy inspired to form a band with his friends after seeing the Rolling Stones perform on TV. The trailer is set to an unbroken clip of the Stones’ “Parachute Woman” (not the Buddy Holly-penned tune that gives the movie its title) and shows what promises to be another deep rumination on the American Dream set in suburban New Jersey. Just without all the braciole.
