Fasten your seatbelts and get ready to time travel all the way back to the mid Eighties. And if you weren’t around then, don’t worry, Eternity will certainly fill you in.
Fabulously cheesy, a rag to riches and back kind of story, it documents the rise and fall of an imaginary band and its founding members Todd and BJ. Set in sunny California, Eternity sports all the unforgettable 80s clichés of questionable fashion, synthesized riffs and power ballads.
Todd Lucas (Barrett Crake) is a fluffy-haired and irresistibly naive musician from the Midwest who moves to Los Angeles to follow his grand dreams of stardom. He lands a job at BJ Maxx as a glamourist and that’s where he meets smug saxophonist BJ (Myko Oliver), who shares his passion for rhythm and blues ballads.
When Todd gets his heart broken, he finds inspiration to write new songs. BJ looks after the music and together they form a band called Eternity. But despite the name, their group, brought together by fate and shot to stardom in no time, is pulled apart by love and jealousy.
Eternity is deliciously predictable and the duo, a la Starsky and Hutch, are absolutely fantastic. One of those movies you will watch again and again on a rainy, wintery day. Perfect.
