With the line “We met at Coachella” destined to be some sort of rom-com classic, the movie, based on Robinne Lee’s novel, follows Solène (Hathaway), whose husband (Reid Scott) walks out on the marriage just when the couple’s 16-year-old daughter (Ella Rubin) has her heart set on attending the Coachella music fest. Mom steps in to save the day and the trip.

At the fest, Solène meets Hayes Campbell (Galitzine), a Harry Styles-type pop star. No surprise that sparks fly. “I’m too old for you,” she says. “No you’re not,” says he.

Michael Showalter directs the film from a script by exec producer Jennifer Westfeldt. Also in the cast are Annie Mumolo, Perry Mattfeld, Jordan Aaron Hall, Jaiden Anthony, Raymond Cham, Vik White and Dakota Adan.

Producing are Cathy Schulman — who returns to SXSW after premiering Bernie there in 2012 — via her Welle Entertainment label, Gabrielle Union through her I’ll Have Another banner, Hathaway via her Somewhere Pictures label, Lee, Eric Hayes, Showalter and Jordana Mollick. Kian Gass of I’ll Have Another will also executive produce.

The film, rated R, streams globally on Prime Video starting May 2.
