Ethan Hawke stars in the role of Chet Baker in this remarkably creative reimagining of the legendary jazz trumpeter's struggle to overcome his demons and stage a comeback.
“Ethan Hawke is at his very best in Born to be Blue, a deeply felt and profoundly moving depiction of the relationship between art and addiction.” – We Got This Covered
“A soulful performance... I could absolutely see Hawke's performance garnering attention from Gotham Independent Film Awards and Independent Spirit Awards voters, if not members of the Academy.”
Produced in association with Productivity Media, Telefilm Canada, OMDC and the NOHFC.
North American Theatrical Release March 2016
