Tom Berenger (Platoon), Michael Pare (Streets of Fire) and Ellen Barkin (Sea of Love) star in this cool, compelling classic that really rocks! Twenty years after the lead singer of Eddie and the Cruisers disappeared, the band's songs are hotter than ever. Renewed interest leads TV reporter Maggie Foley (Barkin) to pursue a tantalizing mystery: What if Eddie is still alive? Someone (could it be Eddie?) has been ransacking the homes of surviving band members in a desperate search for tapes of the group's visionary, never-released album. As Maggie interviews the former band members, the pieces of the puzzle start to fit...but only until still deeper mysteries begin to surface. In the sequel, Eddie (Pare) decides to try music again with a new band and starts on the inevitable road back to stardom.
