Born to be Blue

Ethan Hawke lights up the screen as jazz legend Chet Baker, whose tumultuous life is thrillingly re-imagined. In the 1950s, Baker was one of the most famous trumpeters in the world, renowned as both a pioneer of the West Coast jazz scene and an icon of cool. This film zeros in on Baker’s life in the 1960s, as the musician attempts to stage a hard-fought comeback. Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, the story unfolds with the stylistic brio and improvisatory genius of great jazz.
