The Arcade Fire’s album “The Suburbs” won a Grammy and inspired some of the best music videos of 2010.
Now, it’s getting the movie treatment.
“Scenes from the Suburbs” is a 28-minute short from Spike Jonze — who directed the wonderful video for “The Suburbs” — and the band.
The synopsis for the new film:
Director Spike Jonze teams up with Arcade Fire to create a 30-minute short film inspired by their critically acclaimed album, “The Suburbs,” and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia. Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Win Butler & Will Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.
The original video for “The Suburbs” is below.
