Hathaway, 'Prada' assistant reunite for 'Song One'
Seattle Pi - about 3 years
Director Jonathan Demme ("Silence of the Lambs"), with whom Hathaway worked on the 2008 drama "Rachel Getting Married," sent Barker-Froyland's script to the actress. "When he says take a look at something, you take it very seriously," said Hathaway in a recent interview at the Sundance Film Festival, where "Song One" premiered. "Song One" focuses on the romance between anthropology student Franny (Hathaway) and folk musician James Forester (Johnny Flynn) after Franny returns home following an accident that's left her brother, Henry, in a coma. The music of "Song One," composed by Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, plays as much of a role in the film as stars Hathaway, Flynn and Mary Steenburgen.
