The Day the Music Died is a new drama from independent writer-director Bruno Miotto that explores the pathos of rock legend Buddy Holly in a surreal, modern-day setting. The film – which will receive a limited theatrical release in Spring 2012 – stars newcomers Guy Kent as the re-imagined Holly and Paige Segal as his fictional muse Peggy Sue, along with the late 5-time Emmy nominee Harold Gould (The Sting, The Golden Girls) and Jon Morgan Woodward (Seven Pounds).
It is set to receive its first official trailer on Monday December 5th – take a look at the synopsis below, along some stills and a clip from the film…
“The Day the Music Died is a surreal and metaphorical story about a young dreamer called Buddy. Buddy, 22 years old, tries to pursue his big chance of becoming a rocker in modern day Los Angeles. Who is Buddy? Why does he look so much like Buddy Holly, the icon rocker of the 50's? Whats the connection between him and the real Buddy Holly? Is he the real one? And again, what happens when the music dies? The Buddy Holly myth comes down to the city of dreams. The city that reflects upon young dreams, love and illusions. Buddy and Buddy Holly, two characters that strangely never seem to converge, unite at the very end. This is a tale where something more significant than a human dies.”
