After rocking out with Stillwater in the stellar Almost Famous, actor Billy Crudup picks up a guitar again, this time to recover from tragedy, in the indie drama Rudderless. After his son is killed in a school shooting, advertising executive Sam (Crudup) almost gives up on his life, drowning sorrow in alcohol, until he finds a box of demo tapes and lyrics from his son. What begins is a beautiful recovery by way of music, complete with a new young friend named Quentin (Anton Yelchin), who may be in need of a father figure himself. William H. Macy makes his directorial debut with the film and it looks charming as hell. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for William H. Macy's Rudderless, originally from Apple:

Rudderless is directed by acclaimed actor William H. Macy (his feature directorial debut), from script he co-wrote with newcomers Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison. A grieving father (Billy Crudup) in a downward spiral stumbles across a box of his recently deceased son's demo tapes and lyrics. Shocked by the discovery of this unknown talent, he forms a band in the hope of finding relief. Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman, Jamie Chung, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne and William H. Macy himself star in the film which premiered at Sundance and Samuel Goldwyn Films releases it on VOD and in theaters on October 17th.

Another reason for me to love William H. Macy, watch Shameless if you haven't already, seriously!

Selena Gomez makes me cringe.
