Matt Dusk & Ethan Hawke for Born To Be Blue

Canadian director Robert Budreau’s new film Born To Be Blue, Ethan Hawke portrays the famed jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. Baker was best known for his jazz albums and performances in the ‘50s, ‘70s and ‘80s; in between it all, he gained notoriety for his drug addictions which resulted in him losing his teeth.

The new trailer for the film hints at some of Baker’s milestone moments, but as the A.V. Club notes, “Born To Be Blue plays loosely with the facts of Baker’s life, inventing incidents here and rearranging timelines there.” The film made its premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Carmen Ejogo plays Baker’s love interest (a fictional character who draws inspiration from many women who were in Baker’s life) and Kevin Hanchard and Kedar Brown make small appearances as Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, respectively.
