Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons Jam Out in First Trailer for ‘Hearts Beat Loud’
With only a few features under his belt, Brett Haley has become a mainstay at Sundance Film Festival with his warm-hearted dramedies, showing other filmmakers how to pull off such crowdpleasers with ease. His latest feature, Hearts Beat Loud, stars Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons as a father and daughter who connect over a mutual love for music. Ahead of a summer release, the first trailer has now arrived.
“Hearts Beat Loud is a film made of optimism,” Dan Mecca said in his review. “Set and shot in Red Hook, Brooklyn, this film is often slight but always welcoming. The two leads have a pleasant chemistry that elevates each exchange and build out a meaningful–and meaningfully deep–relationship that’s easy to engage with and root for.”
Also starring Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, and Toni Collette, see the trailer and poster below.
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. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery.
Hearts Beat Loud opens on June 8.
