Greetings from Tim Buckley is a mesmerizing portrayal of two generations of musicians. In 1991, a young Jeff Buckley (Penn Badgley, Gossip Girl) rehearses for his public singing debut at a Brooklyn tribute show for his father, the late folk singer Tim Buckley. Struggling with the legacy of a man he barely knew, Jeff finds solace in a relationship with an enigmatic young woman (Imogen Poots, 28 Weeks Later) working at the show. As they explore New York City, their adventures recall glimpses of Tim's (Ben Rosenfield) 1960s heyday.
