On August 4, Roadside Attractions will release Dreamin’ Wild, a new movie that tells the story of Donnie & Joe Emerson, who released the album Dreamin’ Wild to little fanfare 1979, but found acclaim in 2012 through a Light in the Attic reissue. The film stars Casey Affleck as Donnie Emerson and Walton Goggins as Joe, and Zooey Deschanel plays Donnie’s wife, Nancy. Watch the new trailer for the movie below (via People).

In the Dreamin’ Wild trailer, Donnie and Nancy are struggling to maintain a recording studio business. Out of the blue, the Emerson brothers learn that Light in the Attic wants to showcase Dreamin’ Wild, which leads to press and concert opportunities. Matt Sullivan—the Light in the Attic founder and co-owner played by Chris Messina—even reads part of Pitchfork’s review of the reissue (“during its finest moments—to twist a Brian Wilson phrase—[Dreamin’ Wild] is a godlike symphony to teenhood”).
