Directed by cinema legend Peter Bogdanovich ("The Last Picture Show"), "Runnin' Down A Dream" has been selected to close the 2007 New York Film Festival on October 14. "Runnin' Down A Dream" tells a great American story, that of a band that came from the middle of nowhere to win the hearts of millions.

The film focuses not only on the Heartbreakers' inspiring ride to the top but the story of what they did when they got there, as artists, as a band, as people. Bogdanovich's film explores many of the underlying reasons for the band's unparalleled capacity not only to endure but to thrive. Gritty, exuberant, infectious: "Runnin' Down A Dream" tells the Heartbreakers' story as never before.
