Inspired by Todd Snider’s song “Just Like Old Times”, the gritty, modern-day love story follows Jesse, a charismatic but down-on-his-luck troubadour living out of cheap motels and making bad decisions. Jesse finds himself at an existential crossroads during a chance encounter with his old flame Carla, as their complicated past and current troubles threaten to destroy their blissful reunion.

Roadside co-Presidents, Eric d’Arbeloff and Howard Cohen, released a joint statement saying:

Like our previous films The Peanut Butter Falcon, Winter’s Bone and Mud, Hard Luck Love Song knows its authentic Americana setting, and as a native of Austin, TX, Justin’s affection for roots music is evident in every frame.

Director Justin Corsbie also released a statement saying:

Hard Luck Love Song is my love letter to Americana music and the colourful characters who inhabit that world. Todd Snider is among the great American troubadours, following in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, and John Prine, and I humbly tried to honour his unique talent for blending drama, humour, grit, and wit by infusing this film with those ingredients.

Corsbie also co-wrote the script with Craig Ugoretz. Allison R. Smith, Corsbie and Douglas Matejka also serve as producers on the film under the Smith & Crosbie’s Dime Box Entertainment banner.
