Los Angeles, CA – Academy Award® winner Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables, The Devil Wears Prada) and Johnny Flynn (Something In The Air) star as strangers who connect under unlikely circumstances when Song One releases on Blu-ray and DVD March 24 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and The Film Arcade. The film has been available on Digital HD since January 23.

 

Set against the backdrop of Brooklyn, New York’s vibrant music scene, the “delicate drama” (Variety) is written and directed by first time filmmaker Kate Barker-Froyland and produced by Hathaway and Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs). Also starring Academy Award® winner Mary Steenburgen (The Help) and Ben Rosenfield (“Boardwalk Empire”), Song One features original music composed by indie duo Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, with live performances by a vast group of popular artists within the thriving New York music community, including Sharon Van Etten, The Felice Brothers, Paul Whitty, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, Cass Dillon and Lola Kirke.

 

Franny (Hathaway), a PhD candidate in anthropology, has not spoken to her brother Henry (Rosenfield), a struggling musician in Brooklyn, in six months because she strongly disagrees with his career choices. However, when she receives a phone call that Henry has been in a terrible accident leaving him in a coma, she returns home to her estranged family to mend the broken wounds. Unsure if Henry will ever wake up, Franny uses her brother’s journal to indirectly try and understand his world. While learning more about her brother’s life by visiting the local music hotspots he frequents, Franny finds love in the least likely place, a musician (Flynn).

 

Song One is packed with bonus features, including behind-the-scenes recording of the soundtrack and deleted scenes. Additionally, music from the film is available on the Song One soundtrack, from Lakeshore Records. The Song OneBlu-ray Disc will be available on Amazon.com exclusively for the first 90 days of its release.

 

Synopsis

Oscar® winner Anne Hathaway 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 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, 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.
