Tim Minchin Rock + Roll NerdRock + Roll Nerd - The Tim Minchin Story (DVD PAL All Zones)

Filmed over 3 years, ROCK + ROLL NERD is an intimate tale that charts Tim Minchin's meteoric rise of from obscurity to celebrity. Capturing every agonising moment of his climb from dingy cabaret rooms to the world stage, the documentary weaves never-before-seen performance footage, backstage antics, home footage and candid interviews into a funny and deeply personal story of love and ambition.

DVD Special Features:

- Extra performances from Melbourne 2006.
- Never before seen footage of Tim writing a musical
- Deleted scenes from the film and more.

"... delightful and uplifting... ROCK n ROLL NERD is a beautiful portrait of a fascinating, brilliant and very funny performer who seems thankful for, yet genuinely mystified, by his own popularity.....Entertaining, touching, uplifting and funny as hell, I have no hesitation in calling this a must-see." - Tim Martin, Sunday Tasmanian

"An engaging documentary... The refreshingly honest, warts 'n' all coverage secured by first-time filmmaker Rhian Skirving is the trump card here." - Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun

"Fabulous revealing, often painfully honest documentary... This is easily one of the best documentaries made about modern show business, and again underscores how adept Australian filmmakers are with the form." - Jim Schembri, The Melbourne Age
