The Story of the rise of Jeff Buckley...
In 1991 Jeff Buckley (Penn Badgley, Gossip Girl), an unknown twenty four year-old L.A. musician, is invited to participate in a tribute concert in New York City for his late father Tim Buckley (newcomer Ben Rosenfield), the iconic folk rock star.
In the days leading up to the concert, Jeff grapples with his own self doubts and the legacy of his famous father. But with the help of an enigmatic young woman working at the concert (Imogen Poots, The Look of Love), he learns to embrace all of his feelings toward the father who abandoned him - longing, anger, forgiveness and love. Culminating in a cathartic performance of his father's most famous songs, Jeff's debut stuns and captivates the audience - launching his career as one of the greatest young musicians of his time.
Simultaneously told in 1991 and 1966, GREETINGS FROM TIM BUCKLEY poignantly explores the interweaving paths of a father and son who were among the most beloved singer-songwriters of their generations.Now Showing at
