Directed by Jeff Preiss
A compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo and her father Joe, a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction. Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which Joe and Amy-Jo strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.
Jazz pianist Joe Albany and his daughter Amy-Jo battle insurmountable odds in seedy 1970s Los Angeles in this compassionate and compelling story of the unwavering love between a father and a daughter.
Cast: Elle Fanning, John Hawkes, Glenn Close, Peter Dinklage, Flea, Caleb Landry Jones, Lena Headey, Tim Daly
Absolutely fabulous! Outstanding acting!
Amazing acting all around. The multigenerational family bonds felt honest, appreciated the independence and strength of the daughters story.
beautifully done. my hear breaks for these lost people.
I loved the unconditional love and brutal honesty shown in this film. And that the daughter doesn't come across as playing the victim.
