Song One trailer, Anne Hathaway swoons with Johnny Flynn
Film Arcade and Cinedigm will release SONG ONE in theaters and on demand on January 23, 2015 but you can watch a trailer for well-received indie thanks to a trailer that was released by the studio earlier today. The film was written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland and stars Anne Hathaway, Johnny Flynn, Mary Steenburgen, and Ben Rosenfield and features original songs by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice.
Oscar winner Anne Hathaway (Interstellar, Les Miserables) stars as Franny in SONG ONE, a romantic drama set against the backdrop of Brooklyn’s vibrant modern-folk music scene. After Franny’s musician brother Henry (Ben Rosenfield, Boardwalk Empire) is injured and hospitalized in a coma following a car accident, Franny returns home after a long estrangement and begins to use his notebook as a guide to how his life has evolved in her absence.
Franny seeks out the musicians and artists Henry loved, in the course of her journey meeting James Forester (Johnny Flynn), his musical idol, whose success and fame belie a shy and private man. As a strong romantic connection develops between Franny and James, the question becomes if love can bloom even under the most adverse circumstances. The film also stars Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen (The Help) and features original music composed by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, and live performances from Sharon Van Etten, The Felice Brothers, Dan Deacon, Paul Whitty, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, Cass Dillon, and Elizabeth Ziman.
