The film Low Down is based on Amy Albany’s memoir Low Down: Junk, Jazz, and Other Fairy Tales from Childhood with Elle Fanning, Glen Close, Flea, Peter Dinklage and directed by Jeff Priess. The film follows Amy’s experience and story growing up with a jazz musician and drug addicted father in the 1960s and 1970s. In the long line of films about addiction, Low Down helps us see through the eyes of a teenaged girl. Is there more to our story than suffering? Is knowing you aren’t alone in suffering good enough or is there more to hope for?
