The film starring Academy Award-winner Anne Hathaway is bound for Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinedigm will be releasing 'Song One' on Blu-ray on March 24.
Set against the backdrop of Brooklyn, New York's vibrant music scene, the "delicate drama" (Variety) is written and directed by first time filmmaker Kate Barker-Froyland and produced by Hathaway and Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs). Also starring Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen (The Help) and Ben Rosenfield ("Boardwalk Empire"), Song One features original music composed by indie duo Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, with live performances by a vast group of popular artists within the thriving New York music community, including Sharon Van Etten, The Felice Brothers, Paul Whitty, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens, Cass Dillon and Lola Kirke.
Franny (Hathaway), a PhD candidate in anthropology, has not spoken to her brother Henry (Rosenfield), a struggling musician in Brooklyn, in six months because she strongly disagrees with his career choices. However, when she receives a phone call that Henry has been in a terrible accident leaving him in a coma, she returns home to her estranged family to mend the broken wounds. Unsure if Henry will ever wake up, Franny uses her brother's journal to indirectly try and understand his world. While learning more about her brother's life by visiting the local music hotspots he frequents, Franny finds love in the least likely place, a musician (Johnny Flynn).
Bonus features include deleted scenes and a behind the scenes look at the recording of the soundtrack.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
