Alright Now tells the fictional story (based upon a few British bands) of Joanne Skye (played by Cobie Smulders), a fading rock star who refuses to accept that her career is, in fact, fading. Amid the borderline pathetic embers of her musical bonfire, Joanne impulsively and drunkenly decides to enroll in college, only to find that her voyage isn’t working out as planned. Her search for a new beginning leads to a few unexpected places in director Jamie Adams’ completely improvised film.
Smulders — whose career includes nearly a decade of How I Met Your Mother episodes, an untold number of appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a smattering of assorted projects — throws herself into the unenviable position of portraying an unlovable heroine in this film. In our chat, she tells us how this character presented new challenges, and Smulders details how the craziness of modern society and social media has taught her to keep things real in her own life.
While I was watching this movie, it reminded me a lot of Drinking Buddies, not simply because there’s so much booze involved.
I was about to say … was it because there was a ton of alcohol?
Also because of the overall vibe. And I re-read the synopsis, which says “completely improvised” [like the dialogue in Drinking Buddies]. To what degree was the film really improvised?
The entire thing. There was no script. It was one of the reasons why I decided to do the project — because it seemed like a really big challenge. There was no script, we shot it over five days, and it was completely improvised, and we all met each other, and we all stayed in a house together in Cardiff (California). There was no dialogue, there was sort of a basic synopsis, and before approaching each scene, [director] Jamie Adams and I would decide what needs to be said, where do we need to go from here. So we would know what I’d have to say to give the [proper] information to the audience for the next couple of scenes to make sense, but dialogue-wise, no, there was not any script at all.

A rock musician enrolls in college after she breaks up with her boyfriend and her band falls apart.
Unstoppable Entertainment have announced that Cobie Smulders and Jessica Hynes are leading the cast of the new British comedy Songbird, which has just commenced principal photography.
Written and directed by Jamie Adams, the film also stars Noel Clarke, Ian Smith, Laura Patch, Holli Dempsey and Emily Atack. The official synopsis reads:
Joanne Sykes is lead singer of once popular 90’s indie rock band The Filthy Dukes. They’ve been on the road since 1996, slowly but surely managing to play 150-capped venues. We find the Dukes at their last ever gig, and as the band falls apart so does Joanne; she’s finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her with just about everyone, and there’s little left for her once the group disband. So, thinking about the next step, she drunkenly applies for university. University isn’t quite what Joanne expected – far less wild partying, and a lot more yoga and kale. Whilst there, she falls in love with a librarian called Pete. It’s far from smooth sailing, but will going back to university be the new start she needs; who knows, maybe she’ll re-discover her love for music.
