Rock biopic fans should salivate at the seemingly inevitable biopic about BRKN Love. Sure, the band has only one album under their belts, but singer/ guitarist Justin Benlolo has a backstory custom-made for the silver screen (or at least Netflix). 

At just 16 he dropped out of school and left Toronto for New York City with dreams of stardom. It took a few years of woodshedding and getting the right crew, but his lofty ambition has paid off. Their self-titled debut is full of grimy riffs and anthemic choruses, the perfect soundtrack for a “life on the road” flick.
