Plot & Details
In 1991, a young musician named Jeff Buckley (Penn Badgley, "Gossip Girl") rehearses for his public singing debut at a Brooklyn tribute show for his father, the late folk singer Tim Buckley. Struggling with the legacy of a man he barely knew, Jeff finds solace in a relationship with an enigmatic young woman (Imogen Poots, '28 Weeks Later') working at the show. As they explore New York City, their adventures recall glimpses of Tim's (Ben Rosenfield) 1960s heyday, as he drives cross-country with a girlfriend and finds himself on the verge of stardom. Leading up to the now-legendary show that launched Jeff's own brilliant career, 'Greetings from Tim Buckley' is a poignant portrait of a father and son who were each among the most beloved singer/songwriters of their respective generations.
