This comedic biopic covers the life of fictional jazz guitarist Emmett Ray, an irresponsible, free-spending, arrogant, obnoxious, alcohol-abusing, miserable human being, who was also arguably the best guitarist in the world. We follow Ray's life: drunken debauchery, his bizarre hobbies of shooting rats and watching passing trains, his dreams of fame and fortune, his strange obsession with the better-known guitarist Django Reinhardt, and of course, playing his beautiful music. Stars Sean Penn and Samantha Morton, directed by Woody Allen.
In English, 95 mins.
