Justin Corsbie movie debut Hard Luck Love Song, starring RZA, Sophia Bush, Michael Dorman & Eric Roberts premiered at the Austin Film Festival on October 24 2020. It will be release on October 15th.
The movie follows the story of Jesse (Michael Dorman), a charismatic but down on his luck troubadour who finds himself at an existential crossroads as bad choices catch up with him. All this happens during an unexpected reunion with old flame Carla (Sophia Bush).
“Hard Luck Love Song is an homage to acclaimed singer/songwriter Todd Snider and his song “Just Like Old Times.” It’s also a love letter to modern Americana music and the colorful characters who inhabit that gritty world I grew up in.
Todd often says his stories are “mostly true,” and I was inspired by his uncanny ability to blend drama, humor, grit, and wit in such an authentic way.
As in life, things are not always as they first appear and I find that especially true in our story, where characters have complicated layers and a depth that is uniquely compelling.”Justin Corsbie on Hard Luck Love Song
Speaking to the film’s themes, at its core it’s a modern day love story wrapped in a gritty, compelling character study. The director is humbly trying to celebrate those classics through my story in a contemporary and timely way. “Thank you for taking a look at these first look images from the film. I feel fortunate to have received such strong interest in the project so far and I’m excited about telling this story.” concluded director Justin Corsbie.
