The Rudderless trailer is here and it looks like it’s heart is in all of the right places, but it doesn’t look like it’s for me.  Moves about music are so hard to get right and, beyond that, you have to sort of like the music the characters are throwing themselves into.  Aside from all of that, I’m sure a lot of people will dig the movie (if they can get past the school shooting stuff) since it seems solid, well acted and especially well directed by William H. Macy, who is making his debut behind the camera.  It also happens to have a fantastic cast that probably leapt at the chance to work with him in this capacity.

The film stars Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman, Jamie Chung, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne.  Hit the jump for the Rudderless trailer and poster.  Samuel Goldwyn Films releases the film in Theaters and on VOD on October 17th, 2014.

In William H. Macy’s moving directorial debut RUDDERLESS, Billy Crudup plays Sam, a former high-profile advertising executive whose life is torn apart by the sudden death of his son. Living off the grid on a docked sailboat, he wastes away his days while drowning his pain in alcohol. When Sam discovers a box filled with his son’s demo tapes and lyrics, his own child’s musical talent is a revelation for him, a grieving father who felt he’d been absent from his son’s life. Communing with his deceased son’s dashed dreams, Sam learns each song and eventually musters the will to perform one at a local bar. When Quentin, a young musician in the audience, is captivated by the song, the unlikely duo forms a rock band that becomes surprisingly popular and revitalizes both of their lives.
