    Ethan Hawke’s performance as legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker picks up at a difficult time in his roller-coaster career. Rather than a traditional biopic, Robert Budreau’s Born to be Blue is a dream-like, inventive meditation on fame, vulnerability and love. Carmen Ejogo’s honest chemistry with Hawke keeps us engaged, and their love story becomes the heart of the film thanks to her charming performance. According to Brian Tallerico, writing for rogerebert.com, “This movie…takes a lot of time for hope, joy, music and love.”

    We invite you to join us for this beautiful film, and for what’s sure to be a fascinating conversation about music in movies. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
