Mixtape

Ed and Carol reunite…. in Vancouver where Tom Cavanagh films The Flash and Julie  Bowen is co-starring in Netflix’s music-driven movie Mixtape.

What’s Mixtape about?

A girl who never knew her mother discovers who she was from the music on an old mixtape.

The coming-of-age movie stars Gemma Brooke Allen as 12-year-old Beverly and Modern Family’s Julie Bowen (who died her hair brown for the role) as the young grandmother who raised her.

Mixtape is filming in Abbotsford this week at vintage vinyl shop Freewheelin’ Records.

Filming dates: February 8th to March 29th.

Cast: Gemma Brooke Allen, Julie Bowen, Nick Thune, Jackson Rathbone, Olga Petsa, Audrey Hsieh and Diego Mercado

On the eve of Y2K, orphaned, awkward 12-year-old Beverly Moody (Gemma Brooke Allen) discovers a broken mixtape crafted by her teen parents. 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, an anti-everything record store owner who’s the key to finding these tracks, and a renewed bond between Gail and Beverly. 

Characters:

Gemma Brooke Allen is 12-year-old Beverly Moody.

Julie Bowen is Beverly’s young Grandmother Gail.

Jackson Rathbone is Wes, a rocker who knew Beverly’s mother back in the day.

Writer: Stacey Menear with revisions by Alice Wu.

Director: Valerie Weiss.

As a mother of two girls at the precipice of child and adulthood, I felt compelled to direct this story of a 12-year-old girl trying to find her identity through music, friendship and connection with her young grandmother who is raising her. I knew it was a chance to make a timeless film showcasing the world the way I want my own two daughters and their friends to see it. One that reflects the values they need to make it a better place while celebrating kick-ass music, cool 90’s nostalgia, while forging their own identities. A movie that teaches them that nothing is irreparably lost if we can find the courage to connect again. — Valerie Weiss to Deadline.

Producers: Jim Wedaa, Gil Netter.
