Hearts Beat Loud, July 13-16
Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) and Kiersey Clemons star as a father and daughter who start an unlikely songwriting duo and band as she prepares to leave for college. A celebration of artistic joy, this modest comedy is warm, affectionate, and thoroughly likable. Written and directed by Brett Haley (who created the lead role with Offerman in mind) and featuring a stellar supporting cast: Toni Collette, Ted Danson and Blythe Danner.
