Ellie Klug has one last chance to prove her value to her aging music magazine, Stax. As luck would have it, her editor has just the assignment: a no-stone-unturned search to discover what really happened to long lost local rock god, Matt Smith. And wouldn’t you know it? Ellie and Matt have a history. Joined on the road by well-meaning but music-hating documentarian Charlie, Ellie delves into her past and quickly discovers that hype and mythology have not soothed the pain of her own experiences.

For her fourth feature, Megan Griffiths delivers an exquisite and personal comedy in the Velvet Goldmine and Almost Famous tradition of journalists seeking out rock royalty, and instead, finding themselves. Always engaging, Toni Collette anchors a pitch perfect cast that includes Thomas Haden Church, Oliver Platt, and Ryan Eggold in an insightful story about the natural pitfalls of memory, love, sex, and—most dangerous of all—dating a legend.
