Rudderless: William H. Macy’s Critically-Acclaimed Film Starring Billy Crudup, Felicity Huffman and Anton Yelchin, Arrives On DVD (January 20), Own The Hit Album Which Charted To #5 On iTunes!
So good are Rudderless’ sets that one could easily imagine the band becoming the real deal, especially lead singer Cudrup, whose delivery of the emotionally climactic “Sing Along” makes one feel the ghost of John Lennon as much as it does his character’s son. Not since Prince’s end set of PURPLE RAIN has a movie singer ripped his guts out to such powerful effect, if done here to understandably more lyrically strumming resonance for one of this year’s most powerfully moving film scenes. -Daniel Schweiger, AssignmentX
Rudderless, the critically-acclaimed film directed by William H. Macy (on his directorial debut) and starring Billy Crudup, Felicity Huffman and Anton Yelchin, is now available on DVD (order Rudderless here) and digital download (rent it on iTunes). Featuring on-screen performances by co-stars Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin and Ben Kweller as the Rudderless band, the idea that music heals — whether that be for a grieving father or a young man who needs someone to believe in him — is a theme that resounded with movie audiences.
