Hearts Beat Loud is in select theaters on June 15th, 2018.

The perfect father daughter duo, this movie is sure to keep you tapping your toes long after its ended. Nick Offerman, as Frank Fisher, plays the role of widow and loving father to his only daughter Sam. Having started a band long ago, Frank just can’t get music and stardom out of his mind. Quitting the only job he’s ever known, he starts up a band again with his daughter. Sam Fisher, played by Kiersey Clemons, is a Brooklyn native and young teenaged girl ready to head off to college at UCLA and wanting nothing more to do with her home town. However, in the midst of it all, Sam finds herself quickly falling in love. Could this change her mind about UCLA?

Sam and Frank’s first song goes viral on an Indi Pop Spotify station, sending Frank into oblivion at the fact that his daughter will be leaving soon. But that doesn’t stop him from doing whatever it takes to keep “We’re Not a Band” alive and jamming. Despite the original reluctance from Sam, studying medicine in hopes of becoming a doctor, she gives in and continues singing/song writing with her father for the time being. With a talent for music being passed down from generation to generation, Frank has high hopes of his daughter Sam making it big in the music industry. What Sam ends up doing next, is for you to find out! This movie was very heartfelt and at some point, guaranteed to bring a smile upon your face.

Although there are a few missteps in this movie, you overlook them while focusing on the passion and old school-hipster mix brought together to form the best Indi Pop songs you’ll hear all summer. The sincerity in their lyrics tells a story all in itself; from the death of Sam’s mother, to some of the bigger life choices they are both facing in the now. Offerman and Clemons play their parts seemingly well, creating a progressive and well preformed film. I hope you end up enjoying it as much as I did. I know I will definitely be telling my coworkers all about this cute and fun new movie, by Brett Haley, Hearts Beat Loud.
