Yeah, we know, we forgot about this one too. Waaaaay back in 2012 — yep, two years ago — it was announced that Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Brown-Findlay were making a movie called "Lullaby." Cool story bro, and like everyone else, it was wiped from our memory. Well the thing was filmed and usually, if a movie starring this kind of ensemble takes forever to arrive, and once it does, its in the hands of a tiny indie distributor, the results probably aren't so hot. And now you can judge for yourself, as the first trailer is here.

Lullaby, Garett Hedlund

Yeah, we know, we forgot about this one too. Waaaaay back in 2012 — yep, two years ago — it was announced that Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Brown-Findlay were making a movie called "Lullaby." Cool story bro, and like everyone else, it was wiped from our memory. Well the thing was filmed and usually, if a movie starring this kind of ensemble takes forever to arrive, and once it does, its in the hands of a tiny indie distributor, the results probably aren't so hot. And now you can judge for yourself, as the first trailer is here.

Written and directed by Andrew Levitas, a producer/actor/artist making his debut behind the camera, the story follows a young man who has to bring the family together and deal with some pretty heavy issues, when his ill father asks to be taken off life support. Heavy stuff. But it's all given the indie, strummy, dramedy treatment here, with a vibe that feels, if not artificial, then a bit contrived. Even the usually reliable Adams doesn't come off looking too good here, thought perhaps the ensemble works better than this promo suggest. 

The film will be arriving in theatres on June 13th. Watch below.
