Grand Piano Featurette

Check out this featurette on Grand Piano, a new thriller starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack. Directed by Spanish filmmaker Eugenio Mira (The Birthday, Agnosia), the film tells the story of a concert pianist (Wood) who discovers a note written on his music sheet during his comeback performance. The note reads: play one wrong note and you die. We’re digging a concept that sounds, as the featurette really wants you to agree with, like something you would have seen from Alfred Hitchcock or Brian DePalma. A small location and unknown reasons for the villain’s malice. Fingers crossed this is as good as the premise suggests.

Official synopsis for Grand Piano:

Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, stopped performing in public because of his stage fright.
