Academy Award© winner Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables) and folk musician/actor Johnny Flynn (Clouds of Sils Maria) star in Song One, a romantic drama set against the backdrop of Brooklyn's vibrant modern-folk music scene. Written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland, music plays a key part in the film, all of which was written by inide-folk singers Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice and recorded live by the incredibly talented Johnny Flynn.
Franny (Hathaway) plays an anthropologist living in Morocco, who has to suddenly return to New York when her mother Karen (Mary Steenburgen) calls to tell her that her young musician brother Henry (Ben Rosenfield) has been hit by a car and left in a coma. As she attempts to seek out the musicians and venues that Henry loved, she meets his idol James Forester (Flynn), and a strong romantic connection begins under the most tragic of circumstances.
