Summary, etc.:
Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, LOW DOWN is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction.. Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which Joe and Amy-Jo strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.. Winner of a Cinematography Award and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize - Dramatic at the Sundance Film Festival.. "[LOW DOWN] bravely and candidly conveys its message, without a trace of Hollywood sugarcoating or simplistic pontificating..." - George Varga, San Diego Union-Tribune. "It is both stunningly somber and breathtakingly well-crafted, a pure and gripping cinematic love song in a melancholy key." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
