Treme [Film]

created by David Simon, Eric Overmyer

"After delivering arguably the best television series ever made in "The Wire ", Simon has again delivered a series unlike anything you've seen on television before. He has gone into yet another downtrodden, forgotten city - this time, New Orleans in place of Baltimore - in search of the heart that keeps it alive. Unlike "The Wire",  it  brims with an unrelenting optimism. "Treme" focuses on New Orleans post-Katrina, with particular emphasis on the musicians who live and play there, particularly in the musically important Faubourg Treme neighborhood. There's Dixieland and zydeco, natch, but also hip-hop and rock; there are NOLA stalwarts like Dr. John, Ernie K-Doe, Lee Dorsey, and the Meters (as well as appearances by Elvis Costello, Steve Earle, and others), but plenty of younger, lesser knowns, too. Whether we hear it in the street, in a club or a recording studio, at home, or anywhere, music is the lifeblood of the city and this series, and it's handled brilliantly. Treme has a lot of characters and their stories to keep up with. There's trombonist Antoine Batiste (Wendell Pierce), a wonderful player but kind of a dog, especially to his current baby mama and his ex-wife, LaDonna (Khandi Alexander), a bar owner who's desperately searching for her missing brother. There's Creighton Bernette (John Goodman), a writer preoccupied with telling the world what's really going on in the city, and his wife Toni (Melissa Leo), a lawyer and thorn in the side of the authorities. There's Davis McAlary (Steve Zahn), a well-meaning but annoyingly clueless radio DJ, his occasional girlfriend Janette (Kim Dickens), who's struggling to keep her restaurant open, and Albert Lambreaux (Clarke Peters), who returns from Houston, finds his house in ruins, and sets about rebuilding it. Simon and Overmyer, who has lived in New Orleans on and off for more than 20 years, have set out to make this an authentic portrayal of the cultural stew and the varied peoples of the city."
