It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen.

Even as an apocalyptic plot-pushing rescue mission unfolds, slapstick police chases keep the level of diverting quirk high, and the husband-wife/father-daughter dynamics remain central.

Ridiculousness played with a straight face, The History of Future Folk is endearing even if it's never quite hilarious.

A sci-fi comic thriller folk music musical. Even its genre is a hoot.

If it sounds nutty, it is; but it is also an effortlessly lovable study in friendship, the power of the imagination and the joy of a musical awakening.

Though made with a light touch, the entertaining Future Folk potently explores both the power of music and connection with people, achieving a surprisingly sweet sincerity with its high concept.

Directors John Mitchell and Jeremy Kipp Walker never seem to do much more than point and shoot, but in such a character-led film (made with obvious care and affection), that's a strength rather than a weakness.

This is a film that sincerely has love for its characters, and the songs are actually quite catchy.

The film's charm, as you might imagine, is derived from the innocent joy that music brings to our main characters.

A low-key sci-fi mashup that charms by focusing on character rather than grandiose special effects.
