Lost in the shuffle earlier this week (at least for us) was the trailer for She Came to Me. The latest film from Rebecca Miller, it’s a star-studded romantic comedy. At least, on the surface it is. It sure seems like there’s a lot going on in this movie, something we’ve also heard from editor Joey Magidson, who has seen it and has a review prepped for late next month. Look out for that, obviously. Whether it’s an awards player or not, it looks like the sort of interesting adult cinema we don’t get nearly enough of Miller writes and directs, with the cast including Peter Dinklage, Marisa Tomei, Joanna Kulig, Brian d’Arcy James, Anne Hathaway, Harlow Jane, Evan A. Ellison, and more. She Came to Me also has an original song by Bruce Springsteen called “Addicted to Romance” which Joey no doubt was thrilled by. The film hits theaters on September 29th.
The plot is as follows:
The wonder and beauty of a fairy tale, the absurdist humor of a classic screwball comedy and the tough and tender naturalism of independent film converge in She Came to Me, the latest feature from writer-director Rebecca Miller.
Just weeks before the deadline for his latest commission, composer Steven Lauddem (Golden Globe® winner Peter Dinklage) has lost the creative spark that brought him international acclaim. At the urging of his ever-patient wife Patricia (Academy Award® winner Anne Hathaway), he searches for inspiration on the Brooklyn waterfront and finds it in Katrina (Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei), a thrill-seeking tugboat captain docked in Red Hook, who soon has Steven questioning everything in his life.
Meanwhile, Patricia is experiencing a spiritual crisis of her own that she conceals under a mask of tranquil perfection. As Patricia and Steven wrestle separately with their doubts, their 18-year-old son Julian (Evan Ellison) embarks on a romance with 16-year-old Tereza (Harlow Jane) which threatens to derail both their futures. Also starring Joanna Kulig and Brian d’Arcy James as the girl’s disapproving parents, She Came to Me is a giddy and unforgettable portrayal of the transformational power of love.
