Focus Features and Working Title’s feelgood Los Angeles music scene drama The High Note starring Tracee Ellis Ross and Dakota Johnson is to get a digital-first PVOD release on May 29.
The story centres on the dynamic between Grace Davis, a musical star with an inflated ego, and her overlooked personal assistant Maggie, who dreams of making it as a music producer.
When Grace’s manager presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever. Ice Cube, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Diplo also star.
Nisha Ganatra directed her follow-up to Late Night from a script by Flora Greeson. Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produced, and executive producers are Nathan Kelly and Alexandra Loewy.
The film had been scheduled to open theatrically on May 8 and will now go out on digital-first platforms including Amazon, Apple, Comcast, and Vudu for a 48-hour rental period at $19.99.
