“Like Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne is an actor who can do just about anything when given the opportunity.” – Richard Roeper, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
“A sweet-tart confection that, like lemon sorbet, cleanses a palate gone sour from too many cinematic servings of the heavy stuff.” – Michael O’Sullivan, WASHINGTON POST
Annie (Rose Byrne), the curator of a small museum in a drab English seaside town where she was born, is beginning to realize that her life has been stuck in low gear. Her partner of 15 years, Duncan (Chris O’Dowd), aspires to be the world’s foremost expert on reclusive American singer-songwriter Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke) and spends all his free time maintaining a website dedicated to the mostly forgotten rocker. Crowe quit the business at the height of his fame and now, pushing 50, is living in his ex-girlfriend’s garage in New York and trying to make up for past parental failures by dedicating his life to raising his young son. But when Duncan receives the long-lost demo version of Crowe’s revered album, it sets off a chain reaction that will change all of their lives. Duncan hails the album as a masterpiece on his Crowe-themed website, while Annie, frustrated by his obsession with the washed-up musician, posts her own scathing review. She is startled when Crowe unexpectedly reaches out to her. As their friendship blossoms, Crowe comes to London for a visit and the stage is set for an epically messy love triangle that inspires Annie to take the chance of a lifetime. Juliet, Naked is based on the novel by Nick Hornby.
