Based on the real story of Donnie and Joe Emerson, and on the article published by Steven Kurutz in The New York Times in 2012, Dreamin’ Wild is the tale of two musicians finding success when the 30-year-old record they recorded as teenagers finds a new audience. Donnie Emerson (Casey Affleck) has never fully given up on his dreams of making it as a musician. He lives, unfulfilled, with his loving musician wife Nancy (Zooey Deschanel) and two children, struggling to make ends meet with gigging as a wedding singer. Joe (Walton Goggins) has long stopped trying to pursue music. Things are thrown into disarray by the arrival of a record producer who has learned of the record through underground buzz. There is a gentle loveliness to Pohlad’s filmmaking, everything from sun-swept Eastern Washington State vistas to teenage parties to live performances. –IndieWire
