Telstar

Video

Set against the backdrop of hedonistic, swinging, early '60s London, Telstar shares the stranger-than-fiction true story of Joe Meek (Tony Award-winner Con O'Neill, who originated the role on London stage). An enormously talented but quirky maverick, Meek revolutionized British pop, enjoying enormous success early on with the biggest selling record of its time, Telstar, the first U.K. album to hit #1 on American charts. But the flamboyant, tone-deaf songwriter was also a deeply troubled soul – dabbling in the occult and addicted to amphetamines – and his decline was as meteoric and spectacular as his rise. Also starring two-time Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, The Usual Suspects) and Pam Ferris (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and featuring an original soundtrack.
