Casey Affleck and Zoey Deschanel play Donnie Emerson and his wife Nancy in Dreamin’ Wild, the real story of the singer/songwriter’ second chance at music, success and life. Directed by Bill Pohlad, the film has been presented, out of competition at the 79th Venice International Film Festival. Deschanel and Affleck use the occasion of the movie to comment on the meaning of success and how it must be to fear failure when you are given a second chance at making your dreams come true.

Dreamin’ wild: What if a childhood dream suddenly came true—but thirty years later? That’s what happened to singer/songwriter Donnie Emerson. His dream of success suddenly—and unexpectedly—came true but only as he approached 50 years old. And while it brought hopes of second chances, it also brought ghosts of the past and long-buried emotions as Donnie, his brother Joe and their entire family came to terms with their newly found fame. Dreamin’ Wild is an incredible true story of love, hope, family, guilt, and responsibility.
