A Movie Worth Watching

it's 2.34am

just finished watching Rudderless, a movie released in 2014 


The story tells of Sam, who went from a successful businessman to a drunk living on a boat due to losing his son, Josh, two years ago. Josh shot and killed six fellow students before killing himself on his campus. Sam begins to listen to Josh's songs when his ex-wife decides to share Josh's personal effects. One night, he sings one of those songs at Trill's Tavern, which impressed Quentin. Quentin gets close to Sam and manages to persuade him to start a band to sing the songs, with only Sam knowing the songs' origin. The band turns out to be quite a hit. But one night, Josh's ex-girlfriend Kate comes and says that its wrong to sing Josh's songs.

Sam and the band keep playing gigs until one day they got a shot a a big break gig. Right before they're up, Kate shows and reveals the songs' origin to Quentin, who then agrees with her and decides to quit the show. Sam make amends with Josh's past by visiting the memorial place of the shooting, giving Josh's songs to his ex-wife for her to listen, and encouraging Quentin to go back doing music. Finally, Sam sings one of Josh's songs one last time, acknowledging the song's origin and telling Josh's message through the song.
