A lot of “Sopranos” fans will enjoy David Chase’s 2012 film, “Not Fade Away.” Unless you hated the way the TV series ended and/or have a general aversion to quirky endings. In that case, don’t watch it. It’s a New Jersey movie co-starring James Gandolfini, but it’s not a mob movie. It’s a coming-of-age period piece that traces the 1960s rock-and-roll revolution. It’s kinda like if Bryan Adams’ song “Summer of ’69,” unfolded over several years. Gandolfini is good as a dad staring into the generation gap. There are times you want to smack John Magaro, who plays his son.
