Greetings from Tim Buckley


US Premiere

USA | 100 MINUTES | English | English subtitles


“Like father, like son” is a demanding expression for someone who never knew his dad. When young Jeff Buckley is asked to participate in a tribute concert for his late musician father, Tim, music opens his eyes to the artistic legacy that he is destined to follow. Neither inspiration nor forgiveness comes easy, but young intern Allie gives him a hand to hold along the way. Director Daniel Algrant creates a harmony between the characters that maintains a balanced energy and aesthetic between the decades of father and son in this quiet and powerful tribute to those legends sustained by admiration, love and, in this case, beautiful music.

Rising star Imogen Poots adds a wonderful depth and tenderness to the film, while Penn Badgley completely transforms himself into young Jeff. For those used to seeing a different sort of leading man in him, it will not take long to be surprised and delighted. His impressive and singular a cappella rendition of a Led Zeppelin tune is not to be missed.
