Sundance trailer of the day: ‘Memphis’ [video]
Today’s 2014 Sundance Film Festival trailer — the last before the festival starts tomorrow — takes a musical journey on the streets of the town where Graceland and the blues co-exist.
Tim Sutton’s drama "Memphis" centers on a singer, blessed with "God given talent" wandering through the title city on his own journey of self-discovery. He avoids the recording studio, is surrounded by a variety of characters — while on a journey, the filmmakers say, that "drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension."
Singer-musician Willis Earl Beal not only stars in the film, but wrote the score.
