Zoe Lister-Jones and Adam Pally Rebuild Their Marriage Through Music in First Trailer for ‘Band Aid’

Written by on May 13, 2017 


After finding success on primetime television with Life in PiecesZoe Lister-Jones has now made her directorial debut with Band Aid, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. With Lister-Jones also writing and producing, the dramedy follows a couple who is looking to rebuild their marriage and finds a way to do so through music. Ahead of a release next month, IFC Films have now released the first trailer.

“If one is familiar with Richard and Linda Thompson’s discography they would automatically be reminded of the once-married musician couple’s “Shoot Out the Lights,” their greatest work together, but also a therapeutic record made during a tumultuous period in their relationship,” we said in our review.”The feelings and emotions expressed in the record felt all too real. Zoe Lister-Jones‘ feature debut — which she also wrote, stars in, produced, and co-wrote the lyrics for the songs in — Band Aid, tries to follow the same path to varying results.”

Starring Lister-Jones along with Adam Pally, Fred Armisen, Hannah Simone, Brooklyn Decker, Retta, and Susie Essman, check out the trailer below.

Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can’t stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot.


Band Aid opens on June 2.
