“Guys this is my band.” My girl starts UCLA in the fall.” In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Nick Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop.
“How’s it going kiddo? It’s jam sesh time.” “No I don’t want to be in a band and even if I did I wouldn’t want to be in one with my dad.” Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act.
“We don’t always get what we love so we need to love what we do.” After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery. “Are you suggesting that I don’t go to college so that I can be in a band with you?” In ‘Hearts Beat Loud’ when a song of theirs finds success online, it complicates Frank’s attempts to let go of his dreams of stardom and allow his daughter to find her own path in life.
Directed by Brett Haley, from a screenplay by Haley and Marc Basch the drama music film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, 2018. Starring Nick Offerman, Kiersey Clemons, Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner and Toni Collette ‘Hearts Beat Loud’ is scheduled to be released on June 8, 2018.
