This Movie Gives Hope for Every Dude Over 40 Who Wants to Form a Band

One day, you wake up and you find that you’re forty years old. As you comb your thinning hair and contemplate your expanding girth, you realize that (a) you’ll never play professional sports; and (b) live the dream of being in a touring rock band.

Well, hang on just a second.

Maybe you’re too old and decrepit for sports, but who says that you’re too old to rock’n’roll? Take a look at Uranus, a group of five middle-aged guys who wouldn’t take getting old lying down. They may be businessmen by day, but by night they’re the “third best band in Hong Kong.”
