Here's the first trailer for William H. Macy's feature directorial debut, Rudderless — which premiered at this year's Sundance fest — about a grieving father named Sam (Billy Crudup) who comes to terms with the death of his son by starting a band and performing his late son's music. Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman plays the grieving mother, Selena Gomez (hopefully rebounding from the curse of the 0 percent tomatoes) is the grieving girlfriend, and Anton Yelchin is the surrogate-son figure who helps Sam find his rudder (?) again through the gift of song. Also through boating? There are a few metaphors going on here.
