I think it was Normal People that got me really excited for anything Irish. I have always loved Ireland, but Normal People set me on a road of wanting to find out everything I could about the culture.
Now there’s a movie that I have to see and you know, in part because Ireland and in part because Kat McNamara is in the movie. The trailer and the poster for the film were released and we are swooning.
The movie? Finding You.
Finding You is an inspirational romantic drama full of heart and humor about finding the strength to be true to oneself. After an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory, violinist Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid) travels to an Irish coastal village to begin her semester studying abroad. At the B&B run by her host family she encounters gregarious and persistent heartthrob movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre), who is there to film another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise.
As romance sparks between the unlikely pair, he ignites a journey of discovery for Finley that transforms her heart, her music, and her outlook on life. In turn, Finley emboldens Beckett to reach beyond his teen-idol image and pursue his true passion. But when forces surrounding Beckett’s stardom threaten to crush their dreams, Finley must decide what she is willing to risk for love.
Finding You is written and directed by American cinematographer / filmmaker Brian Baugh, of the films To Save a Life, I’m Not Ashamed, and The World We Make previously.
Kat is joined in the movie by Rose Reid, Jedidiah Goodacre, Patrick Bergin, Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Judith Hoag, with Tom Everett Scott and Vanessa Redgrave.
Roadside will release Finding You in select theaters May 14th.
