Ben & Ben
Fate is a funny thing. Take for example the meeting of Zack and Sarah. Polar opposites yet fated to be together when they meet by chance on a bus ride. Zack is a 20-something momma's boy who works with computers and is no good at talking to girls romantically while Sarah is an aspiring singer who is seeking to find her own voice amidst career and relationship troubles. What connects them is that they both share the same interest in music and the band Ben & Ben. After the bus ride, they part ways but the words and music they shared continue to reverberate throughout their lives as they encounter family and romantic troubles. They are repeatedly separated and reunited while chasing their dreams and we notice that they are meant to be together.
With a cast of sparky supporting characters, a charming romance mashed up with music and drama, "Last Song Syndrome" celebrates the creativity of love and youth to make a feel-good film.
