Directed by Jeff Preiss | 2014

With John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close

Based on Amy Albany’s (Elle Fanning) memoir of her turbulent adolescence with her father, legendary jazz pianist Joe Albany (John Hawkes), this richly evocative drama charts the pianist’s crippling struggles with heroin addiction as seen through Amy’s eyes. Graced with tour de force performances by a star-studded cast including Glenn Close, Peter Dinklage, and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and a marvelous, moody soundtrack featuring Coleman Hawkins, Thelonious Monk, and Albany himself, this moving elegy to a bygone era by the multi-talented Preiss (cinematographer for the revered Chet Baker documentary Let’s Get Lost) poetically captures the seedy romance of the 1970s LA jazz scene. An Oscilloscope Laboratories release.
