Storyline

Music From Another Room is a romantic comedy that follows the exploits of Danny, a young man who grew up believing he was destined to marry the girl he helped deliver as a five year old boy when his mother's best friend went into emergency labor. Twenty-five years later, Danny returns to his hometown and finds the irresistible Anna Swan but she finds it easy to resist him since she is already engaged to dreamboat Eric, a very practical match. In pursuit of Anna, Danny finds himself entangled with each of the eccentric Swans including blind, sheltered Nina, cynical sister Karen, big brother Bill and dramatic mother Grace as he fights to prove that fate should never be messed with and passion should never be practical.

Goofs

In the scene when Anna runs in and up the stairs, her fiancée and brother (with a cast on his foot) are at the foot of the stairs. They try to stop Anna from going upstairs, and when she still goes up, her brother turns around and it is clearly visible on the back of his cast that it's a slip on (it looks like Velcro might be holding it together).

Where do I begin? So many good points...
20 July 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews



OK, if you're in the mood for a slightly nutty romantic comedy, go for this one.

The subplot, with Jennifer Tilly's performance as a shy, sheltered blind girl, reluctantly coming out of her shell, is totally luminous (sorry 'bout the cliche, but no other word fits), without resorting to the corniness of "A Patch of Blue." To me, it was actually a more affecting story than the main plotline.

The other actors do a great job, especially Brenda Blethyn (what do they teach in British acting class?), Martha Plimpton, and Jayne Adams. The story moves along nicely, and one event seems to flow naturally into another.

My guess is, if there had been an A-List Hollywood star on board, like, eg, Bruce Willis, this little film might have gotten quite a bit more recognition. But the chemistry would have been completely different.

Bring a date and some popcorn, and enjoy.
