Low Down

 

Genre: Drama

 

Director: Jeff Preiss

 

Starring: Elle Fanning, John Hawkes

 

Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, Low Down is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between a heroin-addicted, musically ambitious father and his daughter. Set against a sensuously textured Hollywood in the 1970s, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which they strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.
