Mr. Jimmy by Peter Michael Dowd – USA, Japan | 2019 – 114 minutes

Sakurai Akio dedicated his life to Jimmy Page. For 30 years he recreated vintage Led Zeppelin concerts in Tokyo clubs until the “real” Jimmy Page stops by one night, changing Akio’s life. Inspired by Mr. Page’s ovation, Akio quits his job and leaves his family to move to Los Angeles and join the “Led Zepagain.” Soon cultures clash, and Akio’s vision of America encounters reality.
