STARRING J.K. Simmons, Julia Ormond, and Mía Maestro
DIRECTED BY Jim Kohlberg

Grab your Kleenex box and hold on tight, because this one sounds like a true tearjerker. J.K. Simmons plays a father who must fight to connect with his estranged son (Lou Taylor Pucci) after the boy is afflicted by a brain tumor that keeps him from forming new memories. He turns to music to help bridge the gap between them. The film marks the directorial debut of Jim Kohlberg, though many members of his cast — Simmons, Tammy Blanchard, Julia Ormond — are seasoned veterans.
