Matthews' Writes "Joshua" Song

By Waldo Jaquith
Joshua PosterDave Matthews wrote a song on which the plot of the movie "Joshua" turns, the the Associated Press reports. The thriller is about a musically-inclined boy who becomes demented as his family falls apart; he sings the song at the end. "Joshua" was produced by ATO Pictures, which is co-owned by Matthews. The movie opens in a few markets today, and will be screened more widely later this month. The major reviewers like it, and it was nominated for the grand jury prize at Sundance and won the cinematography award.
