Though Bruce Springsteen's songs are a vibrant part of the contemporary American songbook, he regularly uses his lyrics to express his deep misgivings about the proverbial "American dream". With "Western Stars," a feature-length film that marks the Boss' directorial debut, New Jersey's favorite son returns to a question with which he's grappled for decades -- the struggle between transient freedom and communal life.Springsteen plays his full "Western Stars" 13-track album in the film -- it hearkens back to the 1970s-era golden age of the Laurel Canyon music scene -- with backing from band members including his wife Patti Scialfa and a 30-piece orchestra.Springsteen co-directed "Western Stars" with Thom Zimny and he considers it the third instalment in a trilogy that began with his acclaimed 2016 memoir and his wildly successful intimate Broadway show.Scialfa, Springsteen's wife of nearly 30 years and member of his famed E Street Band, plays guitar and sings in the film, but also is charming in home movie from the pair's honeymoon.
