Set in 1987 Los Angeles, Drew and Sherrie are two young people chasing their dreams in the big city. When they meet, it’s love at first sight, though their romance will face a series of challenges.User Review: ROCK OF AGES is a tremendous surprise! Well-scripted, spot-on casting, well-acted, the singing, choreography, choices by the actors for their characters, directing, editing, soundtrack. What is the best surprise is that Tom Cruise’s voice is perfect for this; raw yet emotive. He nails his role, as do all of his co-actors. This film is a clear U.S. cultural experience in the musical genre like DIRTY DANCING, Saturday NIGHT FEVER, MAMA MIA, CHICAGO, DANCE WITH ME, GREASE, ET AL. See it in the theater. Without giving it away “Romeo and Juliet as one arc, then an amalgamation of Steve Perry’s and others lives in rock n’ roll as the second arc. And the male lead to Julianne Hough’s character, Diego….You, Go, Diego! You have great pipes.
