Cast: Ethan Hawke, Carmen Ejogo, Callum Keith Rennie

Ethan Hawke gives an extraordinary performance as legendary trumpeter Chet Baker, the ‘James Dean of jazz’, in Robert Budreau’s unconventional biopic. In the 1950s Baker was an icon of the West Coast jazz scene but by the 1960s his life was in the grips of a profound heroin addiction. Driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds with the improvisatory genius and stylistic brio of great jazz.
