If you’re not one of the 19 million people who’ve already seen the stage production, now’s the time to swallow your pride and indulge your latent passion for ’60s balladry and screeching falsetto vocals. This musical biography of pop super-group The Four Seasons doesn’t stray far from the Broadway show: John Lloyd Young reprises his role as Frankie Valli, while the script doesn’t appear to take too many liberties with the plot. Clint Eastwood is at the helm, and given his track record in handsome biopics of American cultural icons, he should do the boys proud.
