Taking Woodstock (2009)

An American drama directed by Ang Lee.
A young small-town politician invites the woodstock crew to hold their event in his town. He boards the crew at his parents' motel and wanders around during the concert.
This was pretty desultory. The plot seemed to follow the outline of the actual event and the characters were secondary to that. The main character and his parents were slightly developed. The video style mirrored the 1970 documentary film, Woodstock. It featured split screens of different scenes taking place at the same time. There was some compositing/special effects, but I don't want to spoil that part. The pacing was moderate to relatively quick and there was nudity. Overall, nothing to get excited about, but not bad. I rate it o.k.
