About the Movie

Award-winning actor William H. Macy makes his directorial debut in this heartfelt and inspirational drama lead by an exemplary cast. Sam (Billy Crudup), a former high-profile ad executive, is devastated by the sudden death of his musician son. When Sam discovers a box filled with his son's demo tapes, the grieving father’s downward spiral comes to a standstill as he explores this unexpected gift. After mustering the will to perform one of the songs at a local bar, Sam meets and forms a friendship with Quentin (Anton Yelchin), a young musician. The unlikely duo forms a rock band that becomes a local sensation, and they set out on an emotional musical journey that ultimately revitalizes both of their lives.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Dishonest, manipulative and ultimately infuriating ... – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Oct 16, 2014

Fresh: Crudup's performance holds the center. His pain isn't soggy or showy; it just feels true. – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 16, 2014

Fresh: A sober but not at all humorless film in which sentimentality is viewed as suspect, something to be indulged, if at all, in secrecy. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 10, 2014

Fresh: It's not easy making an uplifting film about the aftermath of the death of a son. But director and co-writer William H. Macy and actor Billy Crudup as the bereaved father pull it off in "Rudderless," a movie more about redemption than the causes of evil. – Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 16, 2014

Cant wait

Anticipating This

From what I've heard, Rudderless is simply amazing and moving. The cast is phenomenal and you should expect great things from this. The soundtrack is great, so check out the soundtrack along with the movie. And also don't bash on this film because Selena Gomez is a star in it. It's not fair to bash a certain person or a certain film because of where it's stars made a name for themselves. Grow up.

Selena lover
