Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration, Patrick Stewart needs some in the UK Trailer for Life With Music. Blue Finch Film Releasing release the trailer ahead of it’s release as Jean-Luc Picard /Charles Xavier stars as a acclaimed musician gets stage fright!
In this life affirming story of hope, acclaimed pianist, Henry (Stewart) finds himself afflicted with a severe case of stage fright. After a fateful meeting with a free-spirited music critic (Katie Holmes), Henry begins to find inspiration and learns to let go of his past.
I don’t know why the film name has changed, it was called Coda when it was released earlier this year in the USA. Have to say the new title is better plays better to the tone of this film than the original name.
Henry Field (Patrick Stewart) is an acclaimed concert pianist and one of the great virtuosi of his era. Upon returning to the stage after a prolonged absence, he finds himself suddenly afflicted with a severe case of stage fright. His once effortless play has abruptly turned into a self-conscious struggle of every bar. Old wounds have crept up on the master as he now fights to ward off artistic disaster.
Enter Helen Morrison (Katie Holmes), a music critic with a kindred spirit and a troubled past of her own. Helen believes she might hold the key to Henry’s return to form, but she must first overcome his defences and win his trust. As Henry’s condition starts to improve, the blossoming relationship takes an unexpected turn which could precipitate his downfall. Unless he finally faces his demons and the darker truth lurking beneath the glory of the stage.
The film also stars Giancarlo Esposito and Letitia Brookes.
