Music possesses an extraordinary power, capable of uplifting your spirits with a catchy tune or evoking profound emotions with a heartfelt melody. In the upcoming film ‘Dreamin’ Wild’ by Roadside Attractions, music becomes the catalyst for an extraordinary journey that transforms the lives of two brothers and their entire family. Inspired by the true story behind the eponymous 1979 album, ‘Dreamin’ Wild’ is set to hit theaters on August 4, and the official trailer has been released to build anticipation.
COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY
‘Dreamin’ Wild’ revolves around the life of Donnie Emerson (portrayed by Casey Affleck), a talented singer-songwriter who, nearly thirty years ago, recorded an album alongside his brother Joe (played by Walton Goggins). Although the album was initially created as a teenage endeavor, it unexpectedly emerges from obscurity, granting the brothers a second chance to find their audience. Now hailed as a critically acclaimed duo, Donnie, Joe, and their family must adapt to their newfound fame while confronting the challenges of their past. Roadside Attractions describes the album’s rediscovery as a source of hope for second chances.
Right from the start, the trailer establishes a poignant and hopeful atmosphere, offering glimpses into Donnie’s life and the delightful surprise brought about by the album’s resurgence. As the brothers narrate their story in the present day, we are transported back in time through vivid flashbacks featuring their teenage selves (portrayed by Noah Jupe and Jack Dylan Grazer). Unlike their adult counterparts, the young boys brim with excitement and determination, ready to conquer the world. Eventually, the grown Donnie and Joe strive to reignite that same hope, embracing the transformative changes that lie ahead. However, the trailer also hints at the hurdles they must overcome, reminding us that their journey is not without its obstacles.
