Dad owns a vinyl record shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. He is a musician who still plays his guitar. Kind of sad guy who has a big heart and does a good job raising his mixed race daughter, who is about to go off to the West Coast to UCLA. They have a tradition of jamming as she can really sing. She is sometimes the parent as she is grounded and real. He is more of a dreamer.
He begs her to join him in his quest for stardom. He buys all kinds of digital equipment and they make a great song (for real) and he uploads it to Spotify and it gets realtime play. He wants her to delay UCLA where she is in pre med. His vinyl store is closing and they perform there. There is a sub plot with dad and the record store landlady who could be interested in him and makes him a deal to keep the record store open. He mulls over her and her offer.
Meantime are dad and daughter good enough to make it? Or is this just a good feel before reality sets in?
The movie pulls you in and thank the movie Gods that Hollywood did not get a hold of the script. This is a feel good movie and I was hoping I could walk out at the end feeling that way. I did.
And a few really good songs
