Logline: Sorta Like a Rock Star follows a teenage girl who, despite her difficult circumstances, is preternaturally optimistic about the world and her place in it. She often helps those around her, resulting in powerful bonds with a disparate group of outsiders in her community, until she faces a devastating loss and can no longer ignore the challenges in her own life.
The film is an adaptation of Matthew Quick’s (Silver Lining’s Playbook) novel by the same name.
Principal photography is set to begin this October
