One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Song One, the directorial debut of Kate Barker-Froyland. The film stars Anne Hathaway as a young woman who returns home after her brother is injured (Ben Rosenfield) and romantically connects with his favorite musician (Johnny Flynn). Set against the backdrop of the Brooklyn music scene, Song One also stars Mary Steenburgen as Hathaway’s mom, which is perfect casting.
The day after the premiere, I landed an exclusive video interview with songwriters Jenny Lewis & Johnathan Rice. They talked about how they got involved, their songwriting process for the film, the emotional importance of the songs, being at Sundance, and much more. Hit the jump to watch.
