BLAZE is a biopic of Texas outlaw music’s unsung legend Blaze Foley and written by Ethan Hawke and Blaze Foley’s former sweetheart, Sybil Rosen. Rosen will join us at the Orpheum Theater for a Q&A session on the 29th!
Hawke approached Rosen about the project after reading her own telling of Foley’s story in the book “Living in the Woods in a Tree.” The lead role of Foley is played by newcomer Ben Dickey (a musician by trade), and fans of Netflix’s Arrested Development will spot Alia Shawkat as the female lead (Sybil Rosen). Rosen plays her own mother in the film. Blaze was filmed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and opened at Sundance Film Festival 2018.
“Blaze is hands down the best movie of its kind since Inside Llewyn Davis.” — Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
