"If you have a second shot, then you really have to take it." Netflix has revealed the official trailer for a comedy titled I Used to be Famous, a feature film adaption of director Eddie Sternberg's award-winning 2015 short film of the same name. This heartfelt dramedy follows Vince, played by Ed Skrein, a desperate former popstar who dreams of making a comeback. An impromptu jam session with autistic young drummer Stevie sparks an unexpected friendship between the two misunderstood musicians. Together they form a unique bond through the power of music while helping Stevie achieve his dreams. Leo Long co-stars as Stevie, with a cast including Lorraine Ashbourne, Eleanor Matsuura, Neil Stuke, Jamie Wannell, Stanley Morgan, and Eoin Macken. This looks quite good, with a sweet story about a popstar realizing (hopefully) that friendship is more important than fame and how music can really change lives. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer for Eddie Sternberg's I Used to be Famous, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
