What motivates a man to go on a mission? How about a mid-life crisis and possibly losing your job. A few years back, journalist Geoff Edgers was approaching 40 and faced the very real possibility of being laid-off from the financially troubled, Boston Globe. So, he did what any self-respecting music fan would do. He set out to reunite one of his all-time favorite bands, The Kinks.  Edgers documents his journey in the new film, “Do It Again.”
