The Movie Partnership has announced that the heartwarming film, A Boy Called Sailboat, will be available on Digital Download from 6th May.
The film features J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, La La Land) and Jake Busey (The Predator, Stranger Things) and is the winner of the Boston Film Festival’s Festival Prize, Newport Beach Film Festival’s Audience Award and the Prescott Film Festival’s Director’s Choice Award.
In a slanted home beyond the reaches of a drought-ridden town, an isolated Hispanic family accept an impossible blessing and name their only son “Sailboat”.
Sailboat brought fresh love and hope to his family who have forged a simple but proud life in America, but one afternoon he brings home something more: a “little guitar”.
From this moment, Sailboat and his ukulele are inseparable, and when his ill grandmother requests he write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable – the greatest song ever written.
Will the mysterious song breathe one last miracle, or reveal a hapless twist of fate that will return his family to a house held up by a stick; a car with no doors; an unchanging wardrobe; and a friend who can’t blink..?
