Jazz legend Chet Baker (Ethan Hawke) searches for love and redemption when he is approached to star in a movie about his own troubled life in order to mount a comeback in the late 1960s. Ethan Hawke lights up the screen in Born To Be Blue and is brilliant as Baker, whose tumultuous life is thrillingly re-imagined with wit, verve, and style to burn. Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds with all the stylistic brio and improvisatory genius of great jazz. “Everything that makes Ethan Hawke an extraordinary actor – his energy, his empathy, his fearless, vanity-free eagerness to explore the deeper recesses of a character – is on view in his performance as Chet Baker,” says Peter Traverse, Rolling Stone Magazine.
