     Written and directed by band-member Greg Naughton and starring The Sweet Remains, THE INDEPENDENTS is a musical comedy/drama inspired by Rich, Greg & Brian's real-life experiences together as a band.  The film made a great splash at its 2018 Santa Barbara Int'l Film Festival debut where The Hollywood Reporter hailed it "An extremely engaging film.  An unconventional and sharply written script which subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story.” (Full review here)  It then won the jury prize for BEST FEATURE FILM 2018 at the Omaha Film Festival -- and has gone on to win invites & audiences at great festivals all over the U.S.   General release is in the works -- check back in late 2018 for announcement!


Featuring original music by the Sweet Remains, the film is also fortunate to have cameo performances from some great and well-known actors including RICHARD KIND, JAMES NAUGHTON, KELLI O'HARA, BOYD GAINES, CHRIS SULLIVAN, KEIRA NAUGHTON & GEORGE WENDT.

2018 marks the band's tenth anniversary. In May of 2008, Greg and Brian flew to Los Angeles to meet Rich and spend a week recording in Rich's apartment on the corner of Laurel and Sunset.  Those recordings became the band's debut album, Laurel & Sunset, including four songs produced by Andy Zulla, who continues to be an important collaborator with the band today.  Thanks to all for a decade of tSR!
