Do you remember when you forgot about Rick Springfield? This is the story about the people who never did!
Some may find the rabid devotion of Rick Springfield’s fans perplexing, but if his 17 Top 40 hits, including “Jessie’s Girl”, or his run on General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake didn’t convince you, watching him blast out live performances with straight-on charisma and spontaneously dropping in on fans most certainly will. Somewhere in between the introvert plagued with lifelong depression and the 60-something extrovert who still performs 80 to 100 high energy concerts a year, lies the real Rick Springfield. For most fans Rick Springfield is much more than a celebrity crush; some have overcome deep trauma by connecting with his music, for others he has served as a catalyst for life-long friendships, and without fail all have a unique bond of reciprocity with him. A fascinating look at a singular, multi-generational celebrity culture, AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART is a soulful examination of contrasting individual connections revealed through common universal threads of humanity.NR, 93 Minutes
