Sam (Billy Crudup) is an advertising executive that has to deal with the loss of his son after a school shooting. His world is tuned upside down until he finds a box that contains music written by his son. He then makes major changes in his life when he meets Quentin (Anton Yelchin) and forms a band, but Sam is still hiding a secret. To find out what happens next and what the secret might be, you'll have to watch "Rudderless."
The major focal point of the whole movie would be the music and "Rudderless" hits all the right notes. The music adds so much to the movie and helps move the plot along despite all of all the emotions and depressive themes. The acting and casting was also spot on because everyone seemed to give the movie their all. Lastly, the relationship and friendship between Sam and Quentin seemed so natural and relatable to the point that it felt so genuine and real.
There are so many good elements to the movie and I know it will affect different people in different ways. However, general audiences need to give it a chance first, as they should because it was a very well done movie. The movie is full of raw emotion, tells a great story and unlike anything I've seen in a long time. For those reasons, I am giving this movie an "A" and recommend you check it out as well.
