The noir crime thriller Hard Luck Love Song arrives on premium VOD Nov. 9, and for digital purchase and on demand Dec. 21 from Lionsgate.
Based on the song “Just Like Old Times” by singer-songwriter Todd Snider, the film stars Michael Dorman (“For All Mankind,” “Patriot,” The Invisible Man), Sophia Bush (John Tucker Must Die, “One Tree Hill,” “Love, Victor”), Dermot Mulroney (“Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Arrested Development,” My Best Friend’s Wedding), Primetime Emmy Award nominee RZA (2020, Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, TV’s “Wu-Tang: An American Saga”), Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts (1985, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Runaway Train), and Melora Walters (Magnolia, Boogie Nights, Dead Poets Society).
The film follows Jesse (Dorman), a charismatic but down on his luck troubadour hustling pool in dive bars, living out of cheap motels and making bad decisions. Jesse finds himself at an existential crossroads during a chance encounter with Carla (Bush), an old flame, as their complicated past and current troubles threaten to destroy their blissful reunion.
