Taking Woodstock, directed by Ang Lee, is a comedy-drama about the Woodstock Festival of 1969. It is based on the true story of Elliot Tiber who was instrumental in getting the festival to be held in Bethel, New York. It stars Demetri Martin, Emile Hirsch, and Liev Schrieber.
This is a movie I am definitely interested in seeing. My family has a house outside of Woodstock (which is the county next to Bethel) and I’ve been going to the Catskills every summer my entire life. Taking Woodstock will be released on August 16.
