Song One (2014) Trailer

The trailer for writer/director Kate Barker-Froyland’s romantic drama Song One has arrived online.

Starring Anne Hathaway, Johnny Flynn, Mary Steenburgen, Ben Rosenfield, Li Jun Li and Stefano Villabona, Song One offers a romantic drama set against the backdrop of Brooklyn’s vibrant modern-folk music scene. After her musician brother Henry (Rosenfield) is injured and hospitalized in a coma following a car accident, Franny (Hathaway) 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 (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.

Song One not only features original music composed by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, but it also offers live performances from Sharon Van Etten, The Felice Brothers, Dan Deacon, Paul Whitty, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, Cass Dillon, and Elizabeth Ziman.

The film was first screened earlier this year at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, but Song One‘s wide release is scheduled for next year on January 23.
