Story


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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
“..the movie is pleasant enough, but also incapable of making a lasting impact..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
“..it's not quite "Once," but "Song One," featuring original music by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, captures a similar, unselfconscious beauty in the way music can make sense of big, ungainly emotions - as James puts it, "for three to five whole minutes"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
