With A Star is Born, Vox Lux and Teen Spirit all on the way, we're in for a wave of dramas centred around female musicians. You can add writer/director Alex Ross Perry's Her Smell to that list.

Perry reunites with his Listen Up Philip and Queen of Earth star Elisabeth Moss, who plays a once popular rock star now struggling to fill local venues.

Her Smell premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th.

You can check out the first clip below.


The official synopsis reads:

Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) is a '90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted band mates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.

Anchored by a towering, unflinching performance from Golden Globe and Emmy winner Moss, and supported by a stellar ensemble cast, Her Smell examines the grit, grace and gravitas of an unforgettable fictional rock star crashing down to earth into the harsh realities of mid-life. With his incendiary and deeply humane fifth feature, writer-director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip, Golden Exits) pumps up the volume and shines a light on the terrifying moment when superstardom wanes - and quiet becomes the new loud.
