Songbird

Sometimes you’ve just got to rock n roll with it


Synopsis

Joanne (Cobie Smulders), poster girl and lead singer of once popular 90s britpop band The Filthy Dukes is now playing to small, half empty venues. When her boyfriend Larry (Noel Clarke) cheats
on her, it’s the last straw and the band break up in spectacular fashion. Embarking on a wild night out with her best friend Sara (Jessica Hynes), Joanna wakes to find that she has somehow drunkenly enrolled at university. Convinced that she is going to give the youngsters a run for their money in the partying department Joanne is shocked to discover that Millennials have no idea who she is and are far more into yoga and kale smoothies than crazy rock & roll parties. Written and directed by Jamie Adams (Black Mountain Poets, Benny & Jolene) and produced
by Jason Maza, Noel Clarke of Unstoppable Entertainment (Brotherhood, 10x10) and Maggie Monteith (Searching for Sugar Man), Songbird is a feel good comedy about love, life and the search for new beginnings.
