In 1991 Jeff Buckley, an unknown twenty-four-year-old L.A. musician, is invited to participate in a tribute concert in New York City for his late father Tim Buckley, the iconic folk rock star. In the days leading up to the concert, Jeff grapples with his own self doubts and the legacy of his famous father. But with the loving help of an enigmatic young woman working at the concert, he finds the courage to perform at the now legendary St. Ann s concert, where Jeff discovers his own voice singing his father s songs, captivating the audience and launching Jeff s own meteoric career.

I found his movie great, especially the flashbacks back and forth to his father. Buckley's music doesn't go unnoticed in this.Published 6 months ago by Jake Pendleton
I felt as many of the reviewers felt... Penn Badgley did a great job of channeling Jeff at the end and I think that job is particularly hard because Jeff was such a unique person. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Arianne Damrow
There's some good material here, the actors are fine. It's just that... it needs a tighter editing. Lingers too long on scenes that should be cut - example: Jeff singing in the... Read morePublished 9 months ago by NoNameNope
A sad story detailing the lack of connection between two very talented artists: father and son. Would have liked more about Tim Buckley.Published 9 months ago by Jeanne Chambers
