In the 1930's, Emmet Ray ruled as the second greatest jazz guitarist in the world. But offstage, and particularly in regards to his relationships with women, he was the undisputed king. Academy Award(r)-nominee Sean Penn stars in this richly textured comedic portrait. Emmet's reputation as a renownedmusician is eclipsed by his eccentric career moves, hilarious clashes with gangsters and stormy love affairs with two very different women: Hattie (a breakout performance By Academy Award(r) and GoldenGlobe-nominee Samantha Morton), a mute laundress who loves Emmet unconditionally, and Blanche (Uma Thurman), an eccentric heiress he impulsively marries. SWEET AND LOWDOWN has been acclaimed as "a loving and comic tribute to a musical era! A standout performance by Sean Penn! Samantha Morton's Hattie is a very sweet virtuoso performance!" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)
I'm a Woody Allen fan but particularly enjoy his films which feature/incorporate a good amount of jazz and blues. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Stephen W. Zukowsky
Very different portrayal for Mr Penn, but really fun to watch. I'm enjoying it to no end no end.
A fine movie with wit and great music. One of Woody Allen's most light-hearted films. Sean Penn and the rest of the cast are excellent.Published 5 months ago by Lewis A. Shepard
Funny film, great performance by Sean Penn, and fun for jazz lovers.
While Penn isn't coming across as a comedian, he character is very funny.
Love this movie and the music is wonderful. Sean Penn did a fantastic job as did the rest of the cast. But the music is the star.Published 7 months ago by J. Feldman
