William H. Macy’s Acclaimed ‘Rudderless’ Movie Debuts On Starz, Own The Soundtrack!

rudderless-soundtrack-600-starz

The most pleasantly surprising element of Rudderless is its soundtrack. The songs, most of which are actually performed by the Rudderless band (Crudup, Yelchin, Ben Kweller, and Ryand Dean, and primarily written by Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus) are melodious and endearing, both humorous and moving. Crudup and Yelchin prove talented musicians. – Under The Radar

 

Director William H. Macy’s directorial debut in Rudderless, is now available On Demand via Starz — watch it tonight on Starz Edge at 10:10 p.m. ET!  Starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne, and rocker Ben Kweller (who made his acting debut), film critic Daniel Schweiger says, “Not since Prince’s end set of Purple Rain has a movie singer ripped his guts out to such powerful effect, if done here to understandably more lyrically strumming resonance for one of this year’s most powerfully moving film scenes.”

The critically-acclaimed Rudderless Soundtrack also features performances by the Rudderless Band (Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Ben Kweller, Ryan Dean).

Paramount Home Media presents RUDDERLESS, available now on Starz (check availability), On Demand (rent it on iTunes) and on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here).

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!
