The most unique comeback story of the year. Dennis Lambert was one of the most successful and diverse songwriter/producers of the “~70s and “~80s, with hits like “Ain~t No Woman Like The One I~ve Got” , “Rhinestone Cowboy” , “Don’t Pull Your Love”, “Baby Come Back” and “Nightshift” . He had chart-toppers in almost every genre of music — at one point four of his songs were simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a feat previously accomplished only by The Beatles. That was then. Today, he~s a 60-year-old family man selling real estate in Florida. But it turns out his obscure 1972 solo album is huge”~ in the Philippines. A Filipino concert promoter has been begging Dennis to come tour for decades, and in 2007 he finally agreed. OF ALL THE THINGS is a hilarious and touching pop/rock/country/R&B documentary that follows Dennis on his whirlwind tour as he rediscovers his passion for music — a two-week adventure that takes him from the comforts of Boca Raton to a sold-out show at Manila’s famous Araneta Coliseum for thousands of fans he never knew he had. Some lives deserve an encore. Winner of the AUDIENCE AWARD at the 2008 Sarasota, Nantucket and Palm Beach film festivals.
