Hearts Beat Loud

Out Now On-Demand

Indie dramedy with Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons (Dope) as a father-daughter music duo that accidentally blow up on Youtube.

In the hip Brooklyn neighbourhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery.

Kiersey Clemons proves she's the real deal. As for the film around her, Haley's 21-drum solo salute to the passage of time is, like Frank, merely fine.

Frank and Sam make beautiful music together. No, that's not a metaphor; it's an accurate description that's central to what makes "Hearts Beat Loud" such an engaging endeavour.

There's not a rough edge in sight - and, for many viewers, that will be just fine.

A slice of pure cinematic joy with Offerman and Clemons on top form.

Offerman puts in a subtle turn beneath his humongous ageing-hipster beard and Clemons is deliciously natural as the exasperated Sam.
