Acclaimed actor William H. Macy made his directorial debut with Rudderless, which premiered at Sundance. He says he’s wanted to direct for some time but it took eight years to find a script he liked and “could get people to make.” 

Seven songs were composed for the film, which stars actor Billy Crudup as a father discovering his late son through music he’d written. The film also stars musician Ben Kweller, in his acting debut!
