Focus Features has shifted the originally scheduled May 8 theatrical release for the Nisha Ganatra-directed drama The High Note, with it now to be released on digital platforms May 29. The Working Title film, set in the world of the Los Angeles music scene, stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Dakota Johnson.
Written by Flora Greeson, the story follows Grace Davis (Ross), a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights, and Maggie (Johnson), her overworked personal assistant. While stuck running errands, Maggie aspires to her childhood dream of becoming a music producer. When Grace’s manager (played by Ice Cube) presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever.
