The Drummer and the Keeper
Harkins Sedona 6 -Theatre 1 Wed, Feb 27 4:00 PM
“The Drummer and the Keeper” is the winner of several audience choice awards from prestigious film festivals around the world. Recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the drummer of a rock band strikes up an unusual friendship with an institutionalized teen who is suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Gabriel is a chaotic young rock drummer desperate to hide his recent bipolar diagnosis from his increasingly exasperated band mates. At the therapeutic mixed ability football game he's obliged to attend as part of his treatment Gabriel is spectacularly upended by goalkeeper Christopher, an institutionalised 17-year-old with Aspergers Syndrome. Having taken revenge, Gabriel faces expulsion — and the prospect of being sectioned — unless he "makes friends" with Christopher. This heartwarming story shows the strength of the human bond in the face of adversity.
