Vision Films Presents the Award-Winning Romantic Comedy, BENNETT’S SONG

Vision Films, Auburn Moon Productions and Painted Creek Productions are proud to present the heart-warming new film about love, acceptance and inclusion, Bennett’s Song. Directed by Harley Wallen and written by Nancy Oeswein, this sweet and sentimental film follows two very modern families and a young girl with big music dreams. It is a very timely celebration of diversity, love and acceptance that has been described as Modern Family meets High Fidelity.

When  two  very  unique  and  diverse  families with  seven  kids  each  collide,  they  find laughs,  music,  love, and a  few  answers  about  what  it  means  to  be  a  not-so-normal American  family  in  the  21st  century.

Starring Tara Reid (American Pie, Sharknado), Harley Wallen (Into A Dark Mind, Betrayed), Aphrodite Nikolovski (Cut/Print, Answer This!), Dennis Haskins (Saved By The Bell, A Million Ways To Die In The West), Calhoun Koenig (Moving Parts, Agramon’s Gate), and Victoria Mullen (Model No. Human, Whiskey Tango), Bennett’s Song is the story of a widower, Sam Bennett (Harley Wallen) and divorcee, Susan Song (Aphrodite Nikolovski) finding love against all odds. Their unconventional romance and a not-so-pleasant next door neighbor (Tara Reid) throw a wrench in Pearl Song’s (Calhoun Koenig) big music plans.

Bennett’s Song has taken away honors at several film festivals including Amsterdam Film Festival (Feature Screenplay Competition Winner and  Best Romance), International Independent Film Awards ( Best Director, Best Leading Actor- Harley Wallen and Best Leading Actress- Calhoun Koenig) and Mexico International Film Festival (Best Feature Film).

“What really attracted me to making the film was how warm, cute and beautiful the story and characters were written”, says director, producer and star of the film, Harley Wallen. “I wanted to do it justice and tell the story with the same care and love for the characters as it was written.  It was such an amazing journey and we all sure felt like family when it was all over.  Bennett’s Song feels like a classic the first time you see it and I truly hope the audience will enjoy the ride as much as we did making it.”

Bennett’s Song was inspired by the thousands of families that look like mine and a lifetime in the music business,” says screenwriter, Nancy Oeswein. “Adopting my children from different parts of the world is the best thing I’ve ever done.  Second to that is my career representing emerging music artists and seeing the importance of art in our lives.  This story combines my two great passions.”

Bennett’s Song will be available August 14 on Digital for an SRP $4.99 – $9.99 Rent or Buy across all platforms and to Buy on DVD for $12.99.
