‘Flora And Son’ Trailer: Eve Hewson & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Harmonize In John Carney’s Latest Musical Crowd-Pleaser

August 23, 2023

Apple has given audiences a sneak peek into the enchanting world of "Flora and Son" with its newly released trailer. Starring the talented duo of Eve Hewson (known for her role in 'Bad Sisters') and Joseph Gordon-Levitt ('Super Pumped'), the film was a standout acquisition from this year's Sundance Film Festival, securing attention with its captivating narrative and remarkable performances. Notably, Apple's acquisition of the film marked a significant milestone, echoing the buzz generated by 'CODA' in 2021.

Scheduled for a limited theatrical release on September 22, followed by a global premiere on Apple TV+ on September 29, "Flora and Son" continues the musical magic of acclaimed Irish director John Carney, known for hits like 'Sing Street,' 'Begin Again,' and the Academy Award-winning 'Once.' Hewson delivers what Deadline's Damon Wise hails as a "tour-de-force breakout performance," portraying Flora, a single mother navigating the challenges posed by her rebellious teenage son, Max (played by newcomer Orén Kinlan). As Max's encounters with the law lead Flora to seek a positive outlet for him, a tattered acoustic guitar becomes the catalyst for change. Enter Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a washed-up LA musician who becomes Flora's unexpected music teacher, leading them both on a transformative journey fueled by the power of music.

The film also boasts the presence of Jack Reynor and is a collaborative effort by producers John Carney, Peter Cron, Rebecca O’Flanagan, Robert Walpole, and Anthony Bregman. With Cathleen Dore, Milan Popelka, and Alison Cohen serving as executive producers, "Flora and Son" promises to captivate audiences with its heartwarming tale of resilience, family, and the magic of melodies.
