Storyline

In a Vermont small-town, talented Steven Harper dreams of nothing less than a concert pianist career. His father, Glenn, a wheelchair Vietnam vet, would rather he take over the hardware store he runs with uncle Frank. Steven discovers a famous pianist and composer, Hadley Norman, is living in town. Through kindness he wins the recluse's trust and heart. Finally she agrees to become his teacher, helps prepare his musical future and becomes his first-ever lover. Shortly afterward she breaks up with him, and her ex, John, turns up with terrible news. Written by KGF Vissers

A "must see" for Jane Seymour fans!
13 June 2004 | by (VA, USA) – See all my reviews

Matters of the Heart contains dramatic dialogue which makes each scene so poignant. I could relate to each character in various ways. This movie is about life, and sadly, also about death, but it touches, then penetrates, the deepest core of the heart. In addition, the piano music is amazing, as each piece is played so well and constructively placed in the dramatic scenes. What remains a question I've had, is are the actors (Christopher Gartin and Jane Seymour) actually playing the piano in this movie? If that's not the case, the movie is directed so well, it could actually fool you. The piano music, the conversations, and the intensity of feelings dramatized in this movie will leave you breathless.
