Jane Seymour and Classical Music in One of the Most Beautiful Romances Ever Made
4 November 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Cromwell, the sensitive teenager Steven Harper (Chris Gartin) dreams on becoming a pianist. However, his rude father Glenn Harper (James Stacy), who is a disabled veteran from Vietnam, questions his masculinity since he wanted his son to work in his hardware store with his uncle Frank Harper (Geoffrey Lewis). When Steven finds that the famous pianist and composer Hadley Norman (Jane Seymour) is living recluse in Cromwell, he approaches to her. A couple of days later, Hadley finds that Steven is a talented pianist. She becomes his teacher and plans his participation in a contest in Boston. Despite their difference of age, they fall in love with each other. Out of the blue, Hadley constantly goes to New York, and Steven believes she is meeting her former husband John Norman (Clifford David). One day, Hadley disappears and Steven sees John packing her stuff. Then he tells to Steven what happened to Hadley.

"Matters of the Heart" is one of the most beautiful romances ever made. The sensitive story of a woman and her protégé falling in love with each other is adorable. In the lead role is Jane Seymour, certainly one of the most beautiful actresses of the world; in the soundtrack, classical music. The result is an unforgettable film that unfortunately was only released on VHS in Brazil. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Tarde Demais para o Amor" ("Too Late for Love")
