'The Vigil (for Kurt Cobain)' (1998)

This 1998 Canadian indie starring a cast of unknown actors doesn't feature Cobain or his music — but as you might have guessed from the parenthetical in the title, it was certainly inspired by the Nirvana frontman. The premise: In the days after the singer's suicide, a group of British Columbians band together to travel from north of the border to Seattle in order to attend his vigil. Not much is known other than the fact that Vancouver Province claims "this road movie rocks," but the film is available via Netflix for any curious completists.
