Sweet And Lowdown
The fanciful biography of a legendary jazz guitarist, Emmet Ray, who clashed with lovers, gangsters, musicians and success itself in the 1930’s Jazz scene. Sean Penn stars as the fictional musical genius who during the Swing Era was on his way up but could never settle down. Emmet forever stands in the shadow of his singular hero, the profoundly passionate Django Reinhardt. Woody Allen’s tale traverses the nightclubs, back alleys and train yards of the Swing Era jazz scene – yet was entirely filmed within an hour of Manhattan.
