Elizabethtown (2005)

This is an okay movie. The celebrated idea of designer Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) turns into a fiasco after the shoes are recalled. On that same night while he is feeling depressed, his sister informs him that their father has died from a heart attack and she asks him to fly out to Kentucky to take care of the funeral arrangements. He meets a very talkative flight attendant (Kirsten Dunst) who writes her number on a card for him. One night when he needs someone to talk to, he pulls out her number and their conversation blossoms into a close friendship.

My Morning Jacket was featured under the name Ruckus in the film. They contributed an original song "Where to Begin" and "Same In Any Language" written by Nancy Wilson. While Orlando Bloom is supposedly traveling to Elizabethtown by car, he is going the incorrect direction on the road. He is also pictured going through the Cherokee Park tunnel, which happens to be on I-64. Elizabethtown is on I-65, about 60 miles in the other direction. Most of the small town scenes were actually filmed in Versailles, Kentucky. Elizabethtown is the eleventh-largest city in Kentucky with a population of 28,531.
