The directorial debut of internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, multi- Grammy nominee and pop icon Sia, Music is a powerful, original and celebratory artistic statement and a compelling reinvention of the screen musical.
Zu (Kate Hudson) is a free spirit estranged from her family who suddenly finds herself the sole guardian of her half-sister, Music (Maddie Ziegler), a teenager on the autism spectrum whose whole world order has been beautifully crafted by her late grandmother.
With a history of addiction issues that have challenged her self-worth and reliability, Zu can barely take care of herself and she struggles with the new responsibilities her sister brings. But Music gets by under the watchful and loving eye of her local community, including neighbour Ebo (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Zu soon learns that life’s obstacles can be made easier with a little help and the kindness of friends.
Music is filled with incredible sound, visuals and dance and features stunning musical numbers built around original Sia compositions, written expressly for the film and performed by its remarkable cast, to create a cinematic experience as profound and unique as its title character.
Written, produced and directed by Sia the film stars Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days), Tony and Grammy Award winning performer Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, The Many Saints of Newark), dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler, Sia’s long-time collaborator who has appeared in eight of her music videos including ‘Chandelier’, and actor and comedian Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation).
