Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Running Down A Dream

This a biopic project that Peter Bogdonovic wrote and directed. He went through years of materials to create a completely organized and thoughtful portrayal of this incredible band. The video I watched on Netflix was almost 4 hours long and it held my interest all the way through. But the one small nugget I got to in about hour 3 was the similarity that many successful rock stars have in common. Either their Mothers died early, leaving them to fend for themselves, or their Fathers were abusive. This thread seems to create an anger in the artists that drives them to keep on fighting during their carriers.
