Special Boston Premiere Screening!

LOW DOWN (2014) dir Jeff Preiss w/Elle Fanning, John Hawkes, Lena Headey, Flea, Caleb Landry Jones, Peter Dinklage, Glenn Close [114 min; TBD]
Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, LOW DOWN is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction. Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which Joe and Amy-Jo strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.
