(Rated PG)

"We're the real deal kiddo."

Session Times



Vinyl might be cool again, but that doesn't mean it's going to save single dad Frank's (Nick Offerman) struggling record shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. When his landlady (Toni Collette) reluctantly raises the rent, Frank's life choices are pulled into sharp focus, helped along by his friend and local barkeep Dave (Ted Danson) along with his quiet determination to dust off his old music career. When he convinces his daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemmons) to take some time off from her pre-med school studies to jam with him, rhythm is set in motion and he starts to take their band 'We're not a band' seriously. Sam also faces some tough decisions about whether to leave her dad, her girlfriend (Sasha Lane) and potential fame behind for her West Coast college future.

"Wonderfully warm and inclusive…a genuine delight."
— Little White Lies

Why You Should See This Film

This is the sweetest American indie film in years. The official closing night film of the 2018 Sydney Film Festival, Hearts Beat Loud perfectly balances music nerdery with classic coming-of-age romance and cross-generational dreams. The cast is superb – Kiersey Clemons shines and Nick Offerman is at his laid-back, funny dad best.
