A twenty-something named Chloe (Naama Kates) arrives in Nashville, Tennessee, with one goal: to find success as a singer-songwriter, no matter what. Wandering from bar to bar with her demo CDs in tow, she meets Brandon (Jason Burkey), a local who quickly falls for her, but who may prove more of an obstacle to her success than an aid. Shot entirely on locasion, Nashville's neon lights, street vendors and yellow cabs reveal a beautiful urban jungle not too different from New York or Los Angeles. Director Princeton Holt hones in on the fierce competitiveness of the music industry with a grounded sense of reality, aided by a fearless and star-making performance by musician and actress Kates.

I heard about this movie from a friend who heard it about from a friend who saw it at a festival or something like that. No one has heard of it, even still it has won a lot of awards as I can see on IMDb. This movie is awesome and beautiful and sad though it's hard to say why, maybe because the main character reminds me of my daughter, but in fact they have no similarities, there's just something about the way the movie is. Certainly you know someone like this, a friend or family, who you love dearly but have trouble connecting. That is what the film is really about and what makes it touching. Very good directing, acting, and script, it is also very lovely (coming from someone who has lived in Nashville for years) and real toward the city.
