The first Song One trailer has been released for writer/director Kate Barker-Froyland’s romantic drama. Featuring original music composed by Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice, the film stars Anne Hathaway as a young woman who returns home after her brother (Ben Rosenfield) is injured and romantically connects with his favorite musician (Johnny Flynn). As this trailer shows, nothing brings two people together like a sibling landing in a coma. The movie didn’t get much attention at Sundance, and I can now see why. There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the film, but there doesn’t look like there’s anything special about it either.
Watch the Song One trailer after the jump, and check out Steve’s video interviews with Hathaway & Mary Steenburgen and Lewis & Rice from Sundance. The film opens in theaters and on demand on January 23, 2015.
