LOSERS TAKE ALL
Directed by Alex Steyermark
Written by Andrew Pope & Winn Coslick

Distr. by Phase 4/Kevin Smith Movie Club

A raucous, irreverent rock & roll comedy in which we follow fictional indie rock band “The Fingers” as they stumble their way in the opposite direction of success—commercial or otherwise. Or so they think. As it happens, it’s 1986 and the mainstream is eager to embrace the D.I.Y. sounds of the underground, whether the bands like it or not….
