Chasing the Blues


77 minutes · 2017

In 1987, a white record collector (Grant Rosenmeyer) and a black record-store owner (Ronald L. Conner) discover that an elderly black woman in Hyde Park (Anna Maria Horsford) owns a rare blues recording. The men's attempts to steal the disk end in disaster, but 20 years later they jump at a second, much riskier opportunity to secure it. Writer-director Scott Smith offers some knowing jibes at the white appropriation of black culture, but the comedy is generally goofy and high-spirited. Rosenmeyer and Conner are great foils, and Horsford, with her sweet tea and southernisms, nearly walks off with the movie. With Jon Lovitz, Steve Guttenberg, and Tim Kazurinsky.
