I bought the dvd when it was released several years ago. Good acting by Ethan Hawke, who took trumpet lessons so he could look more believable as Chet Baker, but it was indeed the Canadian player who did the actual playing, and he was fantastic.
I don't know how much of the film is factual, but it got good reviews from those who knew Chet so I'd guess it was an acceptable attempt. I watch the movie once or twice a year and always enjoy it, even though the ending is downbeat.
Love the music of Miles Davis? Big Broadway fan? This is the place to chat.

Anything from R&B to New Age...if you hear it, it's probably in a genre.
Did you know that the Beatles have a song with a trumpet in it? If you didn't, you need to!
