One of the most eagerly anticipated — and simultaneously dreaded — films on the horizon is the indie drama "Greetings From Tim Buckley," which serves as a biopic of Tim's son, the late, great musician Jeff Buckley. From the moment it was announced until the moment it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, fans were holding their breath, wondering if the movie and star Penn Badgley could possibly do Jeff justice.
Well, now we have the first trailer for "Greetings From Tim Buckley." And the verdict?
Looks like you'll have to watch it and judge for yourself.
Set in 1991, "Greetings from Tim Buckley" tells the story of a tribute concert for Tim Buckley, who became a folk icon before his untimely death at the age of 28 in 1975. The concert, of course, was headlined by Buckley, who only met his father twice — and who became a musical legend in his own right before his own untimely death at the age of 30 in 1997.
So does "Gossip Girl" star Badgley, who sings as well as acts in "Greetings from Tim Buckley," manage to pull it off? Check it out, courtesy of indieWire, and watch the magic unfold:
