The Drummer & The Keeper
The Drummer & The Keeper
You find true friendship in the craziest of places!
Gabriel is a chaotic young rock drummer desperate to hide his recent bipolar diagnosis from his increasingly exasperated bandmates. When forced to bond with Christopher, an institutionalised 17-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome, it results in a very unlikely friendship.

"Anyone who contends that the one thing there's just too little of in cinemas is feelgood movies will find that singer-songwriter-turned-writer-director Nick Kelly's debut feature delivers warm and fuzzies aplenty. That said, it doesn't pull any punches in its treatment of mental health issues and life on the outside looking in." -
