Taking Woodstock | Elliot Explores His Sexuality

Share now:

As thousands flock to Max Yasgur’s (Eugene Levy) farm for what would later become one of America’s most famous music festivals, Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) helps care for the guests at the El Monaco Resort. He consoles his concerned mother, Sonia (Imelda Staunton), who worries about her husband’s health and safety. Later that night, Elliot celebrates the beginning of Woodstock by kissing a construction worker, Paul (Darren Pettie), at the bar.

Film Synopsis:
A generation began in his backyard…From Academy Award®-winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) comes Taking Woodstock, the comedy inspired by the true story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) and his family, who inadvertently played a pivotal role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. When Elliot hears that a neighboring town has pulled the permit on a hippie music festival, he calls the producers thinking he could drum up some much-needed business for his parents’ run-down motel. Three weeks later, half a million people are on their way to his neighbor’s farm in White Lake, New York, and Elliot finds himself swept up in a generation-defining experience that would change his life–and American culture–forever.
