After “Teen Spirit” out last July, here is a new movie the action focuses on the musical world, with “The High Note”.
First said to be out on June 24, 2020, the movie will ultimately hit movie theaters on July 14, 2020. Directed by series director Nisha Ganatra (to whom we also owe Late Night with Emma Thompson out this past August), “The High Note” is a musical drama with Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades saga, Bad Times at the El Royale…), she shares the screen with Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfiends, and Black-ish), Kelvin Harrison Jr (It comes at night, Assassination Nation…), Bill Pullman (Dark Waters…), as well as comic Eddie Izzard, rapper Ice Cube and producer Diplo.
Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross) is a music superstar with an oversized ego, but proportional to her talent. Her personal assistant, Maggie (Dakota Johnson), does all the thankless tasks as she has been dreaming all her life to become a music producer. When Grace’s manager makes her a proposition that could transform her career, she and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives together.
