Quiver has released a quirky trailer for a kooky and fun indie film titled Willie and Me. The movie was written and directed by Eva Hassmann, who also stars in the film along with Willie Nelson. The film looks a bit rough, but at the same time, there’s a charm to it that audiences might enjoy.
In Willie and Me, “Greta Weingarten (Hassmann) is a housewife who is trapped in a stagnant marriage. One evening while serving dinner to her successful but bland husband, she hears about Willie Nelson’s farewell concert. Through his music, she is transported back to her disjointed childhood. Greta is suddenly overwhelmed by the need to see Willie Nelson and will do whatever it takes to be at his last concert in Las Vegas. She takes off on her journey, leaving behind her husband and the comfortable life she knows. With everything against her, but so much ahead, she realizes that the return ticket becomes her heaviest piece of luggage.”
The movie also stars Peter Bogdanovich, Darby Stanchfield, Blaine Gray, and Thure Riefenstein. Quiver will release Willie and Me in select US theaters and on VOD on February 9th, 2024.
