And all that jazz.
Based on real events, this music-infused tale of a well-meaning, but often drug-addled pianist, is seen through the eyes of the jazzman’s young daughter.
Joe Albany, played by the king of character actors, John Hawkes, is talented, but has a taste for smack (and trouble) which haunts his music, and his life.
His high notes include playing with big-timers like Charlie Parker and Miles Davis, but the low notes in his life often overshadow his troubled genius.
Watching this all unfold is his daughter and mother, played by the note-perfect Elle Fanning and Glenn Close, respectively.
