Remember mixtapes? Sitting there for hours painstakingly going through all of your music choosing only the most meaningful songs to add to the tape? Then after your creation was done, and the cover art was made, you handed it over to the person who you made it for and hoped that that felt every song choice. Ahh, those were the days.
Netflix just released the official trailer for Mixtape, which looks like a nostalgic trip down memory lane to those mixtape days.
On the eve of Y2k, orphaned, awkward 12-year-old Beverly Moody (Gemma Brooke Allen) discovers a broken mixtape crafted by her teen parents who died in a car accident when she was a baby. Raised by her grandmother Gail (Julie Bowen), a former teen mom herself who finds it painful to speak about her late daughter, Beverly sees this mixtape as a chance to finally learn more about her parents. So she sets out on a journey to find all the songs on the tape. Along the way, she makes friends with her quirky neighbor, Ellen (Audrey Hsieh); intimidatingly tough, Nicky (Olga Petsa); and Anti (Nick Thune), an anti-everything record store owner who’s the key to finding these tracks, and a renewed bond between Gail and Beverly.
MIXTAPE PREMIERES ON NETFLIX ON DECEMBER 3RD.
