THE HOTTEST STATE is the latest directorial effort from Ethan Hawke, starring Mark Webber and Catalina Sandino Moreno (Oscar nominee for Maria Full of Grace). The film, released August 24th by ThinkFilm, has been described as a "bittersweet romance" about an actor who falls for an elusive singer-songwriter. The cast also features Laura Linney, Michelle Williams, Sonia Braga, Frank Whaley and Ethan Hawke.
What is almost more exciting than the film itself is the soundtrack, which features an array of artists - Feist, Willie Nelson, Cat Power, Bright Eyes, Norah Jones, M. Ward and The Black Keys - each covering songs by real life singer songwriter Jesse Harris. The soundtrack is available now.
