The sales person from the Guthrie News Leader, Krista Nicolls, tried to sell a grand opening ad to the set crew at the Trill Tavern. She knew the movie was shooting in Guthrie, but thought it was a new business going in on Harrison Street. The fact that it was a movie set was not revealed to her by the crew. See more »

Incredible Music
22 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Saw Rudderless at a private screening in Chicago hosted by William H. Macy. What a powerful, moving and truly entertaining indie film! The performances by Billy Crudup and Felicity Huffman are fantastic. Billy Crudup is award-winning as a broken father who has lost his son tragically and then tries to relate to his son, to pick up the pieces... through music.

Selena Gomez, while only in a handful of scenes, displays a dark, intense maturity that we haven't seen from her performances to-date.

But the real star of this film is the original music. Fantastic pop rock, catchy tunes with telling lyrics that really make this movie special. The soundtrack is going to be as popular as the movie.

Coming to theaters in the U.S. on Oct 17, 2014! Go see it.
