Exclusive: Watch the trailer for Songbird featuring Cobie Smulder alongside an equally impressive cast
We've got an exclusive premiere of the new trailer for Songbird starring Cobie Smulder, Jessica Hynes, Richard Elis, Emily Atack and Noel Clarke. Check it out above.
If that's not enough, we also have a first look at the film's poster...
Joanne Skye (Cobie Smulders) is lead singer of once popular 90’s indie-rock band The Filthy Dukes. They’ve been on the road since 1996, where once they played to thousands they have come full circle and find themselves struggling to sell out 150-capped venues. We fade in on the Dukes at their last ever gig, and as the band falls apart so does Joanne; her boyfriend leaves her, and there’s little left for her once the group disbands.
She bumps into an old friend, Sara (Jessica Hynes) whilst drowning in her sorrows, and the night ends with Joanne drunkenly applying for university. University isn’t quite what Joanne expected – far less wild partying, and a lot more yoga and kale. Whilst there, she falls in love with the enrolment officer, Pete (Richard Elis). It’s far from smooth sailing, but will going back to university be the new start she needs; who knows, maybe she’ll rediscover her love for music.
Songbird is written and directed by Jamie Adams and hits select theatres in the UK on 10th May.
