American studio Vertical released the trailer for “She Came to Me,” a new romantic comedy that explores the world of opera and the life of a musician in creative crisis. The film stars Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Anne Hathaway (“The Witches”) and Marisa Tomei (“Spider-Man: Never Go Home”), and features original music by Bruce Springsteen.
Peter Dinklage plays Steven Louderdam, a New York composer who suffers writer’s block after the failure of his last opera. Anne Hathaway, who is also the film’s producer, plays Steven’s cold-hearted wife and therapist, Patricia, who is facing her own crisis. Marisa Tomei portrays Katarina, a marine tug operator who becomes Steven’s inspiration and threatens his marriage to Patricia.
The plot also involves the couple’s 18-year-old son, Julian (Evan Ellison), who begins a romance with 16-year-old Tereza (Harlow Jane), which is disapproved of by the girl’s parents. The story unfolds with Steven finding inspiration in Katrina, which culminates in the premiere of his opera, which receives positive reviews. But when Katrina sees her life turning into a farce, she decides to confront the writer and reveals that she is madly in love.
direction and track
The film is directed and written by Rebecca Miller, daughter of renowned playwright Arthur Miller, who has not directed a film since “Maggie’s Plan” in 2015. To ensure an authentic look into the world of composers and opera, he consulted experts such as Daniel Felsenfeld and Peter Gelb, general manager of the Metropolitan Opera.
The soundtrack was composed by Bryce Dessner of The National and included a new song by Bruce Springsteen titled “Addicted to Romance”. The song was inspired by the film itself, the veteran rocker’s first unreleased recording in over a year. Miller said of the recording, “It’s a song that sounds like it could have been right out of the American Songbook, forever.”
“She Came to Me” had its world premiere at the opening of the 2023 Berlin Film Festival and divided opinion, reaching a 65% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The premiere is set for September 29th in the US, but there’s still no forecast for a launch in Brazil.
