Apple Drops Trailer for New Movie “Flora and Son”
Apple? Oh, they’re shaking things up again! Fresh from the oven, Apple has just unfurled its latest offering to the cinematic world – a trailer for a tantalizing movie titled “Flora and Son”. Imagine this: a poignant story that sways between the harmonious chords of a guitar and the chaotic chords of life.
So, let’s paint a picture. Picture Flora, a woman with the world on her shoulders, burdened with the challenging task of raising a rambunctious teenager all on her own. Ah, Max! The teen in question. A vivacious soul, though somewhat of a trouble magnet. Picture the exasperation of a mother, almost at her wit’s end, when the men in blue, our diligent police force, suggest a novel idea. Why not channel that teen energy into something constructive? Like, say, a hobby?
Enter an old, dusty guitar. Sure, it’s seen better days, but with the strum of its strings, magic unfolds. And, as if the universe conspired, into their life walks a musician with the charisma of LA, personified by none other than the suave Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Music becomes the bridge, the glue, the panacea. Through its notes, Flora and Max discover not just the rhythms of melodies but also the rhythm of their bond.
Remember when “Flora and Son” caused a buzz at Sundance Film Festival? That buzz, my friend, wasn’t for naught. Circle your calendars because on September 22, this heartwarming tale will grace select theaters.
Oh! And if you’re thinking, “Who’s the genius behind this?”, it’s the illustrious John Carney. His name might ring a bell. After all, he’s the maestro behind musical gems like “Once” and “Begin Again”. Not to be overshadowed, the film boasts of stellar performances by the ethereal Eve Hewson as Flora and, of course, the aforementioned Gordon-Levitt. But, that’s not all; a constellation of stars embellishes this masterpiece.
Collaborating with Carney to bring this vision to life were some equally brilliant minds. Topping the list are influential executive producers, the formidable Alison Cohen and the dynamic Milan Popelka. If “Flora and Son” isn’t on your watchlist yet, it’s high time it made the cut! English (US)
