The cowriter of a coming short film is The Gaslight Anthem’s drummer. The score comes from another Gaslight member and a friend of the band. What inspires the film is a song on their latest album. All these elements are nice for a fan of the band. From a movie-quality angle, they are all worrisome.
But then I read this description of the film, and I’m completely mollified. “… the film explores the romanticism of owning a physical piece of music and the impact, whether big or small, that it can have on someone’s life.” The movie could be good. Or it could be bad. But I know I’m going to like it.
