Yet More Sixties!

Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock opens tomorrow.

Synopsis (from the review): It tells the story of Elliot Teichberg (played by Demetri Martin), a semi-closeted New York City painter who returns to the Catskills in the summer of 1969 to help his crotchety Russian Jewish immigrant parents (Henry Goodman and Imelda Staunton) revive their fleabag motel. When the nearby town of Wallkill pulls the plug on the Woodstock festival, Elliot steps in, bringing peace, mud, flower children, the cream of late-'60s rock 'n' roll and a dose of enlightenment to his parents' backyard.

(Hmm. I'm not so sure about the "dose of enlightenment" part ... enlightenment doesn't come in premeasured doses like medicine... )

Along with the review, the NYT has run an incredible slideshow of actual photographs from Woodstock, culled from readers' submissions.
