Netflix announced today they have acquired worldwide rights to the film Paradox, written and directed by Daryl Hannah and featuring new music and performances from Neil Young + Promise of the Real, which will debut at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, as announced in February, before launching globally on Netflix  on March 23, when it will also receive a limited theatrical release.

Netflix  describes the film as follows in a press release:

A fantasy, a loud poem and a free-spirited tale of music and love, Paradox is a one-of-a-kind personal expression. Sometime in the future—or is it the past?—a band of outlaws hide high up in the Mountains. The “Man in the Black Hat” (Neil Young), the “Particle Kid” (Micah Nelson) and “Jail Time” (Lukas Nelson) pass the hours searching for treasure while they wait for the full moon to lend its magic, bring the music and make the spirits fly. Vibrating with original music by Young + Promise of the Real, Paradox furthers the legacy of an iconic performer who has always broken the rules.

Paradox is writer-director Hannah’s feature-length debut behind the camera—she’s appeared in front of the camera many times, with iconic roles in the Kill Bill films, 1987’s Wall Street and 1984’s Splash, among others. Hannah’s 1993 short The Last Supper, which she wrote, directed and produced, won a Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival.

Paradox sprung up spontaneously and unexpectedly, like a peculiar dandelion, popping up between the cracks in the pavement,” said Hannah in a statement. “We were fortunate to find this brief window of opportunity to share the love for the natural world, each other and for the precious seeds of creativity and life. We are all thrilled the film will premiere at SXSW and that NETFLIX will be sharing it with the world.”

Hannah’s film stars Young, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, Willie Nelson, Corey McCormick, Anthony LoGerfo, Tato Melgar, Charris Ford and Dulcie Clarkson Ford. Paradox is produced by Bernard Shakey and Elliott Rabinowitz, edited by Paul Snyder and photographed by Adam CK Vollick.

Paradox (Original Music from the Film) is due out on March 23 as well, to be released on digital and vinyl via Reprise/Warner Bros. Records. The soundtrack features studio and live performances from Neil Young + Promise of the Real, as well as classic covers and music composed exclusively for the film.

Again, Paradox comes to Netflix on March 23.

Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson performed at a sold out show, the first show put on by the Maui Country Club on January 28th, with Lukas’ band Promise of the Real. The concert under the stars on the Makai Lawn was for Country Club members and their guests.

Lukas and Micah were joined periodically by their father for some classic tunes, a few covers and some new and old music from his kids. The night was filled with legendary music, fun dancing, delicious food, and strong cocktails. Apart from watching POTR rock the house with such talented musicians, the family dynamic was heart-warming.

Neil Young has kept a pretty low profile over the past year, but it turns out that at least for some of that time he was working on a western movie, Paradox, that will premiere at South By Southwest in March. The film was directed by Daryl Hannah. Young stars alongside Willie Nelson, Micah Nelson, Lucas Nelson and members of his backing band, Promise of the Real.

“Time is fluid in this far-fetched, whimsical western tale of music and love,” reads a brief plot description released by the filmmakers. “Somewhere in the future past, The Man In the Black Hat hides out between heists at an old stagecoach stop with Jail Time, the Particle Kid, and an odd band of outlaws. Mining the detritus of past civilizations, they wait… for the Silver Eagle, for the womenfolk, and for the full moon’s magic to give rise to the music and make the spirits fly.”

The Neil Young fan website Thrasher’s Wheat points out work on the film stretches back at least September of 2016 when Neil Young and Promise of the Real performed in Telluride, Colorado in vintage western costumes. The film will be Daryl Hannah’s first feature-length film as a director, though she did direct Young’s Somewhere In Canada webcast in Omemee, Ontario late last year and the 1993 short The Last Supper.  Young has a long history of filmmaking stretching back to 1972’s Journey Through The Past, though he rarely acts in movies that he hasn’t directed himself.

Paradox is not the only project on the horizon for Young in 2018. He’s overseeing a  slew of archival releases that include his legendary Tonight’s The Night stand at L.A.’s Roxy in 1973 and a compilation of live cuts taped on Crazy Horse’s 2012/13 Alchemy tour. He’s also pledged to return to the road in the latter half of 2018, but it is unclear if he will perform solo, with Promise of the Real or with another backing group.

“Pretty Paper” Lyrics:

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded street, busy feet, hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won’t pass him by

Should you stop? Better not, much too busy
You’re in a hurry, my how time does fly
In the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Merry Christmas

Fresh off a pretty cool 80th birthday  celebration, country star Willie Nelson shows off his stylish side in some sleek black-and-white photos for John Varvatos’ Fall 2013 campaign.

The music legend poses beside his sons—Lukas Nelson, 24, and Micah Nelson, 23—in a Danny Clinch-snapped shot, while Willie is also featured solo in two portraits. No stranger to the advertising world, Nelson has also lent his voice to a Chipotle ad (covering Coldplay’s tearjerker “The Scientist”) as well as taking part in a commercial with Ryan Adams for Gap.
