Canadian indie-pic "Daydream Nation" starring Kat Dennings, Reece Thompson ("Ceremony"), Andie MacDowell and Josh Lucas looks... well, OK. It looks "Juno"-esque for lack of a better way to put it and that's either a plus or a minus, depending on who you are. The film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and we suppose we're curious to see how it actually turned out as we missed it during the festival.

Canadian indie-pic "Daydream Nation" starring Kat Dennings, Reece Thompson ("Ceremony"), Andie MacDowell and Josh Lucas looks... well, OK. It looks "Juno"-esque for lack of a better way to put it and that's either a plus or a minus, depending on who you are. The film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and we suppose we're curious to see how it actually turned out as we missed it during the festival.

However, the real draw for us is the music. Scored by Broken Social Scene affiliate and Do Make Say Think member Ohad Benchetrit, the soundtrack is full of original compositions and songs from indie darlings including Devendra Banhart, Emily Haines from Metric (her solo career is pretty good), Constantines and Stars. No release date it seems on the soundtrack yet (nor album art), but we would assume it arrives shortly after "Daydream Nation" makes its theatrical debut in NYC and LA on May 6th and will be available on DVD May 17th.

The complete soundtrack listing is below the jump. Here's the trailer if you missed it when it was released earlier this month
