Watch the trailer and see the latest poster for Marshall Lewy's California Solo drama from Strand Releasing. The drama starring Robert Carlyle opens on November 15th, with other cast names like Alexia Rasmussen, Kathleen Wilhoite, A Martinez, Michael Des Barres and Danny Masterson in the mix.
Helmer Lewy also scripts the film seen at this year's Sundance Film Festival from Cherry Sky Films in association with Syncopated Films.
Lachlan MacAldonich (Carlyle) is former Britpop rocker who has settled into a comfortably numb existence in farm country just outside Los Angeles. By day, he works on an organic farm and travels regularly to the city’s farmers’ markets to sell produce. By night, he retreats to his crummy apartment to record "Flame-Outs," his podcast that recounts the tragic deaths of great musicians. The only spark in his humdrum existence is Beau (Alexia Rasmussen), a lovely struggling actress and amateur chef who frequents the Silver Lake farmers’ market.
One night, Lachlan gets pulled over for a DUI, a charge that dredges up his past drug offense and threatens him with deportation. Lachlan’s only hope of staying in the U.S. is proving that his removal would cause “extreme hardship” to a U.S. citizen spouse or relative. Lachlan contacts his estranged ex-wife and daughter, raising past demons that he must finally confront.
California Solo is a touching, human story about post-fame life and personal redemption.
