Raven Banner Entertainment has picked up Canadian rights
to the heart- warming documentary Mission To Lars, that follows siblings Kate and William Spicer as they
attempt to fulfill their brother Tom’s lifelong dream, to meet Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
Tom, who is Autistic, has spent the past 25-years at a residential care home in the
English countryside; ignored, for the most part, by his family. When Kate and William share their idea to
plan a road trip following the band as they tour along the west coast of the United States, Tom is up for the challenge at first. But as the date of their departure from the U.K. draws closer, Tom begins to withdraw, refusing
to cooperate. In spite of Tom’s obvious reluctance, Kate and William are determined to press on, and
when they finally manage to track him down, they embark on their trip as planned. Complications,
however, continue to arise at every corner. And as Tom’s sole caretakers, for the first time in their lives
Kate and William come face-to-face with the physical and psychological reality of their brother’s condition
— all while trying to travel their way through massive crowds of fans for the slim chance of getting backstage
access to some of the most iconic rock stars of all time.
Featuring cameo appearances by retired adult film actress and now heavy metal VJ Jasmine St. Claire,
Slayer guitarist Kerry King, and of course members of Metallica, Mission To Lars is William Spicer and
James Moore’s deeply personal and incredibly directorial debut, which was greeted enthusiastically
by audiences and critics alike upon its release in the filmmakers’ country of origin, the U.K.
Mission To Lars will open in select theaters across Canada, starting October 2.
