Eve Hewson's acclaimed musical dramedy Flora and Son has released an extended first trailer.
The film stars Hewson as single mum Flora. She lives in Dublin with her rebellious teenage son Max (Orén Kinlan), who engages in minor crimes. Advised by the police to find Max a hobby to keep him from the streets, Flora rescues an old guitar for him to learn to play.
When she realises her son is more interested in rap than he is in learning tabs, Flora will tackle the instrument herself with the help of Los Angeles-based online guitar teacher Jeff, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Lesson after lesson, Flora and Jeff develop a bond, with the young mum also finding a way to connect to her son through music.
The cast is rounded out by Jack Reynor, Sophie Vavasseur and Kelly Thornton.
The film has earned generally positive reviews, currently sitting at a 95% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Critics are calling the movie "beautiful" and "charming," with praise for Hewson's performance and the musical numbers.
Flora and Son will have a limited cinema run in the US from September 22 and in Ireland from February 23, 2024. It will become available to stream worldwide, with the exception of Ireland, on September 29.
