very well done
10 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

to my great surprise,i loved this film.i does start off slow,but once it gets going,it's actually very good.i really got involved in the story,and i thought the acting was top drawer all the way.not only that,but Dyan Cannon and Amy Irving actually do their own singing and they both sound great.i loved the movie and the soundtrack so much,i actually downloaded(legally)the soundtrack.i have roommate whose Father was a musician and lived on the road,and she told me the movie paints a very accurate picture of that lifestyle.if you have't seen i would encourage you to check it out.it's well worth watching,in my opinion.for me,Honeysuckle Rose is an easy 9/10
