Three sentence movie review: Rudderless
I didn’t see a lot of what was coming in this movie, including the fact that that is Billy Crudup on the cover.* Both Crudup and the increasingly reliable (and intriguing) Anton Yelchin have great chemistry with Crudup playing the wasted and drifting old guy to Yelchin’s youthful enthusiasm. There are women’s names listed on the poster, but this very satisfying movie is about men and the music that brings them together.**
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home
*I mean, I could see his name right there at the top, but I thought they put some other grizzled guy on the cover.
**It also has a fabulous soundtrack.

Per IMDB, it sounds like one of those good movies that would make me cry. Hmm, maybe I’ll do a mini Anton Yelchin film fest in between AFI and the next movie project. That might be fun. Also, I didn’t recognize Crudup on the cover either. Looks good though.
