Not many teenagers would want to be in a band with their dad — but if your dad was Nick Offerman, you’d might reconsider. In the debut trailer for Hearts Beat Loud, we see the first look at the musically-driven father-daughter film that warmed hearts at Sundance earlier this year.
Directed by Brett Haley (The Hero, I’ll See You In My Dreams, Hearts Beat Loud follows single dad Frank (Offerman) as he prepares to send his daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to UCLA while confronting the realization that his record-store business is failing. In the trailer above, we see that they have a strong father-daughter relationship and share a love of music. The two have a weekly “jam sesh” that Frank wants to turn into a full-fledged band — but Sam isn’t too keen on it. After some speed bumps along the way, they eventually become a musical duo in the midst of this turning point in Sam’s life.
Offerman and Clemons are joined by an all-star cast that includes Ted Danson, Toni Collette, Sasha Lane, and Blythe Danner. The film was written by Haley and Marc Basch with original songs and music by Keegan DeWitt.
