Tumbledown is the story of two strangers brought together by the music of Hunter Miles, a folk musician who produced one acclaimed album in the woods of Maine before he died. Rebecca Hall stars at Hunter’s widow, who is struggling to write a biography to honor his legacy, when Jason Sudeikis, a college professor, shows up looking for material on his own book on one-hit-wonders. The two form an unlikely partnership to write his biography, discovering how their pasts have shaped how they listen to his music, and how his songs will color their future.
Sean Mewshaw’s feature debut is a film that lives and dies by its music. Mewshaw finds his Hunter Miles in indie singer/songwriter Damien Jurado, whose original music becomes the soul of the film. Composer Daniel Hart wrote additional music to tie the film together. Today we have a preview of two tracks by Jurado, including the exclusive premiere of the song “Hands on the Table”.
Tumbledown opens in New York and Los Angeles on February 5th, and opens in theaters nationwide and VOD on February 12. The soundtrack from Milan Records will be available on iTunes February 5; you can preorder the album here. It will be released on CD on February 12.
