Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Rudderless Charts Top 5 on The iTunes’ Top 10 Soundtracks!

Congratulations to Director William H. Macy and the entire Rudderless cast and crew!

Rudderless#5SoundtrackITMS

Not surprisingly, the best part of Rudderless is the music (composed by Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus). Six songs play throughout the film, each one with its own distinct hook. From Sam’s first solo performance, which is notably personal and heartfelt, to the lighter, more upbeat rock songs that dominate the second half, there’s a broad range of music here that gets explored under the folk rock umbrella. The soundtrack is so resonant in fact that it sometimes overshadows the main storyline, although never to the film’s detriment. On the contrary, it actually elevates scenes that might otherwise be less impactful. In terms of story, the songs also mark emotional touchstones for Sam, whose journey often aligns with the music. – Max Nicholson IGN

The Rudderless (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is in good company with Guardians of the Galaxy (#1), Frozen (#3), and Begin Again (#6), to name a few.  Love the album?  Don’t forget to share this story with your friends!

Scott wrote, “Seeming to draw equal measures of inspiration from Whit Stillman and Spike Lee, but with his own tart, elegant sensibility very much in control, Mr. Simien evokes familiar campus stereotypes only to smash them and rearrange the pieces.” – See more at: http://www.dearwhitepeoplemovie.com/synopsis#sthash.DrZmw9iJ.dpuf

Overeducated and underemployed, 28-year-old Megan (Keira Knightley) is in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. Squarely into adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to think about her future, and no one to relate to, Megan is comfortable lagging a few steps behind while her friends check off milestones and celebrate their new grown-up status. When her high-school sweetheart (Mark Webber) proposes, Megan panics and—given an unexpected opportunity to escape for a week—hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell). Director Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister, Humpday) crafts a sweet, romantic coming-of-age comedy about three people who find their lives intertwined in the most unconventional way as they make their way through the imperfect realities of modern-day life. Laggies opens in select theaters on October 24 and nationwide on November 7 (check showtimes).
