NAME OF FILM: BLAZE
DIRECTOR(S): Ethan Hawke
STARRING: Benjamin Dickey, Alia Shawkat, Charlie Sexton, Josh Hamilton, Wyatt Russell, Jenn Lyon, Kris Kristofferson, Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn, Richard Linklater
GENRE: Biography Film
SYNOPSIS: Blaze is inspired by the legend of Blaze Foley, a Texas outlaw country singer who tragically died in 1989 before ever hittin’ the big time. Moving seamlessly between three different periods, the film explores his love affair with Sybil Rosen (who co-wrote the screenplay), the days leading up to his death, and the reminiscences of his closest friends after he is gone. Featuring incredible acting and musical performance by Benjamin Dickey (remember his name) and a star-studded supporting cast (Alia Shakwat, Josh Hamilton, Charlie Sexton, Sam Rock-well, Steve Zahn, Kris Kristofferson, and more), Blaze is a profoundly bittersweet and beautiful country music tragedy that will leave tears in your eyes and hope in your heart.
