“Go up in the clouds because the view’s a little nicer”- Zach Sobiech. After the huge success of Justin Baldoni’s ‘Five Feet Apart,’ he is back with another musical drama movie ‘Clouds’ inspired by real-life cancer patient Zach Sobiech. The movie is set to premiere in mid-October on Disney Plus.
CLOUDS: A BATTLE WITH CANCER
Zach Sobiech, a cancer patient from Lakeland, Minnesota, died in May 2013, spending the last few years of his life writing and singing songs. Zach and his friends Samantha (Sammy) Brown and Reed Redmond formed a band together, ‘A Firm Handshake.’ They released the song ‘Clouds’ in December 2012 that was written by Zach about the battle he was fighting. The song Clouds was declared as a big hit only days after its release through YouTube.
Justin’s Clouds walks us through the hard and musical life of Zach Sobiech. It is a very inspiring story for young musicians and especially people who are struggling with cancer.
BASED ON ‘FLY A LITTLE HIGHER’ BY LAURA SOBIECH
The movie is based on the book ‘Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered a Mom’s Small Prayer in a Big Way’ written by Zach’s mother, Laura Sobiech. Laura narrates the book about the time when Zach was young and filled with ambitions. When Zach heard the news of cancer and his time with all the surgeries, it was all highlighted in Laura’s book.
Clouds uncover Zach’s relationships, love life, the struggles, and the time when he started writing music. It is an emotional drama that will greatly impact the viewers to live their lives more fruitfully.
FIN ARGUS AS ZACH SOBIECH IN CLOUDS
The 22-year old Fin Argus will be playing the lead role of Zach in this movie. It will be a breakthrough for the American actor. Fin has been a familiar face in short films, but this movie will be the youngster’s first lead role. Sabrina Carpenter and Madison Iseman play Zach’s best friend, Sammy Brown, who plays the role of what appears to be Zach’s girlfriend.
The other supporting cast members include Neve Campbell (playing Laura Sobiech), Tom Everett Scott (playing Rob Sobiech), and Lil Rel Howery (playing Mr. Weaver). After the Clouds’ trailer was released in September 2020, the fans waited eagerly for the release date to be announced. The movie coming to Disney Plus in the next few weeks will create excitement and joy among the fans.
