P. David Ebersole,
HIT SO HARD follows the journey of Patty Schemel, the openly gay drummer of Courtney Love's seminal rock band 'Hole.' As a young girl who always knew she was 'different' from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of 'Rolling Stone.' But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected 'slacker' generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side.Written by
This film, about a young woman finding her way in music and life, who just happened to be the drummer of the Epic Band HOLE during my younger years, made me see my own struggles, and had me cheering for her all the way. PATTY SCHEMEL ROCKS!!!
Cobain, Love, and Schemel made the ultimate alternative family. there was love, through it all. And today, love is alive.
Director P. David Ebersole takes a celebrity type story and paints a swirling life lived fully, yes roughly, and now admirably. Patty and her Alternative Family of Today are showing the world that young girls rock, need to rock, will rock, and should be supporting in their rocking. It's an important story. A big story. A personal story. A universal story.
