John Carney’s ‘Flora and Son’ Starring Eve Hewson Unveils First Trailer

Apple has released the first official trailer for John Carney’s ‘Flora and Son,’ starring Eve Hewson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Single mother Flora (Hewson) is unsure what to do with her rowdy teenage son Max (Orén Kinlan) when the police suggest he take up a hobby. Max quickly turns to the art of music with the help of a “washed-up LA musician” (Gordon-Levitt), with the family learning the true “transformative power of music.” The first official trailer gives audiences a glimpse into the heartfelt story of the bond between a mother and her son.

Leo stars as Adam Sandler, who also acts as a producer. The film depicts the senior year of elementary school from the perspective of a class animal, a 74-year-old lizard named Leo (Sandler). Living in the classroom with a turtle (Bill Burr) for years, Leo devises a plan to see the outside world when he realizes his days are numbered. Along the way, he gets caught up in the students’ problems. The film is co-directed by Robert Smigel, who also wrote the film, Robert Marianetti, and David Wachtenheim. It is executive produced by Barry Bernardi and Paul Sado.

Zanelli has composed the scores for ‘Christopher Robin’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ and ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’. ‘Leo’ marks a return to the animation genre for Zanelli, who began his career working on the music for ‘Shark Tale’, ‘Antz’ and ‘Chicken Run’.
