Wonderful movie -laughable and serious at the same time
I saw a person who had an ambition, a desire to succeed but was not given the chance (based on the story) to prove herself. She reached the stage to try most anything (not recommended for all situations) to be heard and prove here ability. If a person is that talented and have exhausted all other means - then sometimes drastic measures are acceptable. The acting was wonderful but I was captivated by the piano music. Wonderful composer and musician (whoever played the music - I assume that June was that talented - if so - GREAT. As far as matters of the heart are concerned - it was was not that far-out and did not overstep the bounds of decency and permissiveness. June (the character) was aware and in control of her actions.
