Plot Summary
Aging Arius Green (Ben Keith) lives a quiet life on his Northern California ranch with his family, including his wife (Elizabeth Keith) ; son Earl (James Mazzeo), a struggling artist; and teenage granddaughter, Sun (Sarah White), a budding environmental activist. When a local police officer (Paul Supplee) is murdered, hordes of reporters descend on the town, destroying the Green family's peace. In lieu of dialogue, the actors lip-synch the lyrics of writer-director Neil Young's songs.

  • Amateur in the true sense of the word -- plainly, proudly homemade. show more

  • The film's only dialogue is composed of Young's songs lip-synched and acted out by the cast. This makes for a very literal, somewhat stilted experience. show more

  • Like "Dogville," Neil Young's Greendale uses the deceptively simple "Our Town" foundation on which to build a platform for some highly personal sociopolitical criticisms, but unlike the contentious von Trier picture, the Young variation gets the job done in roughly half the time with a notable absence of histrionics, plus you can tap your toes to it. show more
