THE SONG follows aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell of Anthem Lights) as he struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. After reluctantly accepting a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival, Jed is love-struck by the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose (Ali Faulkner, TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN), and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose “The Song,” which becomes a breakout hit. Thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation in the form of fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas, “Nashville”), Jed’s life and marriage begin to fall apart.
Releasing nationwide on September 26, 2014, from Samuel Goldwyn Films and City on A Hill Studio, THE SONG takes an honest look into the life of a world-weary recording artist searching for meaning and love. Inspired by the Song of Solomon (known for its poetic language about love and lovers), THE SONG features 11 original songs with an American roots flavor.
The release of THE SONG coincides with the Synod of Bishops, held Oct. 5-19, 2014, in Rome, where Catholic bishops from around the world will meet with Pope Francis to address the pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization.
Starring Alan Powell (Anthem Lights), Ali Faulkner (Twilight), Caitlin Nichol-Thomas (Nashville)
