THE WALLS “DROWNING POOL” TO OPEN A MAJOR NEW MOVIE
“CAN A SONG SAVE YOUR LIFE”? Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo star in this soul-stirring music industry drama about an undiscovered young singer and a washed-up producer. These lost souls meet, see something special in the other and ultimately make beautiful music together in this latest film from Once writer-director John Carney. See “News” link above:
The Walls song “Drowning Pool” is the opening title track for “Can a Song Save Your Life”? which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept 7th. The track is very apt, as it’s about getting ripped off in the music business.
Following forays into comedy and supernatural thriller, Irish writer-director John Carney has returned to the musical, the genre he reinvented with 2006′s hugely acclaimed, Academy Award-winning Once. In Can a Song Save Your Life?, the bassist-turned- filmmaker reprises the formula that made Once a sensation, supplementing his principal cast (including Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo) with established recording artists (Yasiin Bey — otherwise known as Mos Def — CeeLo Green, and Maroon 5′s Adam Levine), and seamlessly integrating a series of infectious ballads into the structure of a poignantly authentic romantic drama.
