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. Written by
There are numerous references to the book "Anna Karenina". They include, but are not limited to: Anna going out to skate the first time she meets Danny, the lecherous brother, the final scene involving a train. See more »
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).

[On what love is like]
You know how when you're listening to music playing from another room? And you're singing along because it's a tune that you really love? When a door closes or a train passes so you can't hear the music anymore, but you sing along anyway... then, no matter how much time passes, when you hear the music again you're still in exact same time with it. That's what it's like.

I had seen Jude Law in the Talented Mr. Ripley and was intrigued to find this little film on Cinemax one day. It is well acted and not slow or dragging. It is surrounded by a great cast and Law and Mol were both splendid. But this is a lot like Return to Me in that it's finale is predictable. But the film is so charming and easy to get interested in. The characters aren't boring but rather have quirks that make them watchable. Not a masterpiece, but if you catch it on cable sometime give it a look. 8/10.
