William H. Macy's Directing Debut 'Rudderless' Releases First Trailer


The musical drama centers on a father who grieves the sudden death of his son and then lives out his son's dreams.

William H. Macy's directing debut "Rudderless" has just released its first trailer. Billy Crudup stars as Sam, a high-profile advertising executive whose life is torn apart when his son was suddenly killed in a school shooting.

Off the grid, living on a docked sailboat, Sam drowns his pain in alcohol. When Sam discovers a box filled with his son's demo tapes and lyrics, his own child's musical talent is a revelation for him, a grieving father who felt he'd been absent from his son's life.

Communing with his deceased son's dashed dreams, Sam learns each song and eventually musters the will to play one at a local bar. When Quentin, a young musician in the audience, is captivated by the song, the unlikely duo form a rock band that becomes surprisingly popular and changes both of their lives.

Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison wrote the script to the musical drama. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Felicity Huffman and Laurence Fishburne.

"Rudderless" will open in limited theaters on October 17. It premiered as an out of competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January and was acquired by Paramount in a low-seven-figure deal.
