Synopsis: Tramps Like Us is the story of one of the most appreciated musicians and performers of all time, Bruce Springsteen. Directed by one of his biggest fans, Steven Spielberg. The film starts out with one of his performances in the summer of 1999 and flashbacks to his troublesome childhood living in Asbury Park exploring who this infamous Mary is that he writes about in all of his songs. As the film flashes back, it mentions on how the E Street Band was created and how he met his "Red Head Woman" that he love today. Touching on his career and reaching the point in which the film starts, it follows into his help to relieve victims of 9/11 and how he is just an idol for the state of New Jersey.

What the press would say:

Move over Ray and Walk the Line, the next big music hit is in. Tramps like Us will make you sing, dance, cry, laugh, and just is a good time in theatres. For all those who did not appreciate Bruce in the beginning...You will appreciate him now after seeing this phenomenal film.
