Netflix has debuted an official trailer for a nostalgic drama film titled Mixtape, the latest from filmmaker Valerie Weiss (also by Dance by Design, Loses control, A light under their feet). As the world approaches Y2K, a whimsical 12-year-old embarks on a journey to find songs on a mixtape made by her deceased parents. When a young girl accidentally destroys the mixtape that belonged to her mother, she sets out to track down each of the obscure songs on the cassette. The stars of the film Gemma Brooke Allen as Beverly, med Audrey Hsieh, Olga Petsa, Jackson Rathbone, plus Nick Thune and Julie Bowen. As sweet as it looks, it’s pretty much like hitting gold in the nostalgia mine – combining nostalgia from the late 90s with cassette tape nostalgia in one! There are also toppings of Napster nostalgia and vinyl nostalgia. That do looks like lots of fun music.
Here is the official trailer (+ poster) for Valerie Weiss’ Mixtape, directly from Netflix’s YouTube:
On the eve of Y2k, orphaned, awkward 12-year-old Beverly Moody (Gemma Brooke Allen) discovers a broken mixtape made by her teenage parents who died in a car accident when she was a baby. Raised by her grandmother Gail (Julie Bowen), a former teenager who herself finds it painful to talk about her deceased daughter, Beverly sees this mixtape as a chance to finally learn more about her parents. So she embarks on a journey to find all the songs on the tape. Along the way, she becomes friends with her quirky neighbor, Ellen (Audrey Hsieh); the frighteningly tough Nicky (Olga Petsa); as well as Anti (Nick Thune), an owner of a record store Against Everything, which is the key to finding those tracks, and a renewed bond between Gail and Beverly. Mixtape is directed by American filmmaker Valerie Weiss, director of the films Dance by Design, Loses control, A light under their feet, and The archer previously, plus some TV shows. The script is written by Stacey Menear. Netflix is coming out Mixtape streaming starts December 3, 2021.
