ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL is the sensitive and irresistibly funny story of unsung heroes of Canadian heavy metal Anvil. The band gained a cult following among heavy metal enthusiasts during the eighties, but never really made it in the mainstream rock circuit. But rocking out isn’t just a matter of attitude or luck; it is instead a vocation which Anvil never turned its back on. Director Sacha Gervasi (THE TERMMINAL) witnessed Anvil’s fall from grace directly, having worked as a roadie for the band in its heyday. Moving and hilarious, ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL documents the group’s last shot at stardom and follows it on the road during an often farcical European tour.
