First Trailer for William H. Macy’s Directorial Debut RUDDERLESS


The first Rudderless trailer and poster have arrived online for William H. Macy’s directional debut, starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Macy’s wife Felicity Huffman, Jamie Chung, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne.

A musical drama about the power of a parent’s love premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and everyone liked the first half of the movie, but didn’t seem to care for the second.

However, actors gave great performances, especially Crudup as father named Sam who just shined on the screen in this movie.

The music that Sam’s son wrote plays a huge part of Rudderless and for those of you who like good music, it’s a must watch.

The feature directorial debut of Macy will hit theaters and VOD on October 17.

Hopefully, the picture will find its way to a broader audience.

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.
