Brief summary: Asshole-ish indie rock star Ethan gets a surprise at one of his shows, during a current tour: he learns he might be the father of a 13-year old daughter named Janie. Her drug-addict mother gives Ethan the news, and this is right before his performance. I won’t ruin the rest of the movie for you… but a few things you can count on: fights, great music, lies & betrayal, truth and jail time, travel, and psychotic mothers. Curious? You should be.
Oh yeah, and I almost forgot… EXCELLENT music/songs written by Eef Barzelay of indie legends Clem Snide. And, of note… all of the songs in the film were played and sung by Alessandro Nivola and Abigail Breslin (that always impresses me when actors/actresses perform/sing for real, in movies, instead of faking it.).
Definitely check out this underrated gem of indie filmmaking, written and directed by David M. Rosenthal.
