The movie is based on the life of famed clarinetist Benny Goodman, who recorded most of the clarinet solos used in the film. The movie captures few major moments in Goodman's life but it has been described as less than accurate in details. Goodman's Jewish background is never explicitly mentioned, despite it testing a part in his artistic and private endeavors for decades. In one scene, where his mother tries to talk him out of a romance with Alice Hammond, played by Donna Reed, whom Goodman eventually married, she says, "Bagels and caviar don't mix."

Speed of Life Reviews:

Speed of Life is a drama about a young boy who's mother has died and who actually has the unenviable task of caring for his father, a once brilliant professor who is actually crippled by the onset of Alzheimers Illness and cannot perform any functions such as bathing, eating, or using the restroom on his own. They live in a loft in a drug-ridden borough of NYC. The movie follows his attempts to care for his father, earn money, and go to school while meeting a young artist who also happens to be a drug addict.Excellent film, from writing, acting, script, sets, camera work, etc. Realistic, moving. Scott Caan shows he has range beyond testing the stereotypical criminal and Mia Kirschner in a tiny but pivotal role excels as usual. The actor portraying the invalid father was phenomenal. A drama that is both depressing and uplifting, worth seeing for avid movie watchers.


What an wonderful movie, intense and touching.The story is incredible, and the pace with which it's said is simply perfect. The cinematography by Matthew Libatique and the melody by Ryeland Allison fit perfectly and complement one another.I found myself hooked from the very first minute and stayed hooked till the very last.The cast is incredible; Leo Burmester is absolutely incredible, very intense and heart-touching.But the one I've enjoyed most in this film is Scott Caan. I am a large fanatic of his, but I don't think I've ever seen him better than here. He's really carrying the entire storyline by himself, an absolutely believable and realistic performance. His pain and brokenness translate to the viewer, they are absolutely palpable.Definitely a must-see, a real gem of film making


When the game menu came up, there was no unique feature. This was an indication to me that the film would suck. What a shock I was in for. The movie is just what the summary is. I should maybe add one more line for the ending. It is a deeply emotionally mature and sensitive movie that blends eloquent film-making with a writer's sensitive rhythm to words and silences, all perfectly executed with the most nice performances from the actors, director, and movie crew. My wife started sobbing as she talked about it. She's artsy and never sobs over films. It was THAT moving.
