Collette plays Ellie Klug, an alcoholic rock journalist, in this drama directed by Megan Griffiths. In her youth, Ellie dated Matthew Smith, an influential folk musician, until he disappeared. Now, she is on the verge of losing her job at a music magazine unless she finds Matthew and writes a story about him. Co-starring Oliver Platt and Thomas Haden Church.
Someone like Ellie, her intention is to numb out. She’s basically self-medicating with a lot of alcohol and avoiding any kind of intimacy or real relationship because it’s too confronting.
