LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired U.S. rights to City on a Hill Studio’s music-driven love story, “The Song.” The film stars Alan Powell (lead-singer for “Anthem Lights”), Caitlin Nicol-Thomas (“Nashville”) and Ali Faulkner (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), and features ten original songs produced for the film. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film September 26.
Meyer Gottlieb, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films, said, “Richard Ramsey has created an incredibly touching and triumphant film about temptation, redemption and the power of forgiveness.”
“The Song” follows aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell) as he struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. After reluctantly accepting a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival, Jed is love-struck by the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose (Ali Faulkner), and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose “The Song,” which becomes a breakout hit. Thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation in the form of fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas), Jed’s life and marriage begin to fall apart.
The film was written and directed by Richard Ramsey and produced by City on a Hill Studio. The story is a modern day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon, found in the Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes.
