Hearts Beat Loud is a musical film drama by Brett Haley. The film premiered on January 26, 2018 as part of the Sundance Film Festival, where it was shown as a graduation film, and tells of an aging hipster, his daughter and their shared passion for music.
According to story, Widower and aging Brooklyn hipster Frank starts a band with his teenage daughter Sam just before she leaves home to attend college in California. When a song of theirs finds success online, it complicates Frank’s attempts to let go of his dreams of stardom and allow his daughter to find her own path in life.
Frank Fisher is a widower and runs a record store in Brooklyn that does not work very well. Since his wife died in a bicycle accident, he is a single father. Throughout his life, he took care of his daughter Sam, who was still a child when her mother died, and brought her close to classics such as the Marx Brothers and Jeff Tweedy. Since then, they share their passion for music. Her birth certificate cannot or does not want to find Frank, without whom, however, Sam cannot enroll in college.
After writing a song with his daughter, he is experiencing a wave of popularity as they are now in the digital age, and his music is being received positively by the Spotify community. Sam does not know if she should stay with her father or leave the city to begin training in California. Frank wanted to operate the record store, which he has now owned for 17 years, anyway only so long until his daughter is out of the house.
Then there’s his landlady Leslie and Frank’s best friend Dave, who once tried as an actor, but had only a single appearance in a Broadway play.
John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter describes the film as a “sincere, occasionally touching family drama with a musical background.” Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com calls the film “a really cute, funny and downright sympathetic comedy.”Neil Miller of Film School Rejects says the true magic lies not in the way the story unfolds, but in the human moments. Miller also says Hearts Beat Loud is full of what his title promises: Herz. And in this heart there is a song.On June 8, 2018, the film was released in selected US cinemas.
