Rose Reid and Jedidiah Goodacre are an unlikely pair in the new inspirational drama “Finding You,” releasing on May 14. Fittingly today, on St. Patrick’s Day, Roadside Attractions released the trailer, which was filmed on location in Ireland. The film also features Katherine McNamara, Patrick Bergin, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Tom Everett Scott, and Vanessa Redgrave.
The trailer, which features beautifully shot scenery of Ireland, gives a peek of the plot of a movie star falling in love with a non-famous person, which could remind viewers of the beloved romantic comedy “Notting Hill.” Reid and Goodacre, who navigate the ups and downs of their budding romance, seem to have good chemistry and should also attract a younger demographic. Being rated PG might also hint that the film is more family-geared than many modern romantic dramas.
The official synopsis follows:
FINDING YOU is an inspirational romantic drama full of heart and humor about finding the strength to be true to oneself. After an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory, violinist Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid) travels to an Irish coastal village to begin her semester studying abroad. At the B&B run by her host family, she encounters gregarious and persistent heartthrob movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre), who is there to film another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise. As romance sparks between the unlikely pair, Beckett ignites a journey of discovery for Finley that transforms her heart, her music, and her outlook on life. In turn, Finley emboldens Beckett to reach beyond his teen-idol image and pursue his true passion. But when forces surrounding Beckett’s stardom threaten to crush their dreams, Finley must decide what she is willing to risk for love.
“Finding You,” directed by Brian Baugh and based on the Book “There You’ll Find Me” by Jenny B. Jones, will release on May 14. Watch the first trailer below:
