We've often seen Christopher Walken sing and dance; he's pretty spry for an old guy after all, and we get to see him use those skills in concert with his acting chops in One More Time. Walken stars as alongside Amber Heard as a former crooner looking to make a career comeback, but he's always at odds with his feisty daughter whose own singing career has failed to launch.
The film was written and directed by Robert Edwards, with a solid supporting cast led by Kelli Garner (Heard and Garner in the same movie? *swoon*), Oliver Platt, Hamish Linklater, and Ann Magnuson.
Here's the synopsis:
Beautiful aspiring rock star Jude (Heard) is stuck in a rut - relegated to recording commercial jingles and lost in a series of one night stands. When she is evicted from her Brooklyn apartment, she is forced to move into the Hamptons home of her wealthy - and selfish - father Paul Lombard (Walken), an over-the-hill, Sinatra-esque crooner angling for a musical comeback. As the two reunite, Jude is forced to confront her problems, including troubled relationships with her father and overachieving sister (Garner), as well as her wobbly career and faltering love life. As Jude and Paul butt heads, they unexpectedly find themselves on a journey that may redefine their lives.
One More Time opens in theaters and VOD on April 18th.
