Storyline

Famous modern Classical composer Gregory Pavan delights professor Klezkowski by promising royalties to his old conservatory, whose pupils may play at his next recording. Their teacher, blind cellist Maryann Lowery, is initially most uncooperative, looking down on his music and what she considers a diva-attitude. Gregory however reconciles them and becomes her confident and lover, instead of architect, neighbor and favorite private pupil's father Oliver Comstock. Then real life shakes everything.

Typical but not un-enjoyable
7 September 2004 | by (duluth, MN) – See all my reviews

This movie made my mother and grandmother both fall asleep, but I liked it. A few scenes it was apparent that Amy Grant was new to acting, but there were also several scenes where it seemed like she'd been doing television movies for years - notably the outdoor crying scene. Also, quite a stretch to play a blind woman in her first role. The true star of the movie was Keith Carradine, who plays Maryann's soulmate. DW Moffat also excels as the egotistic pop star who yearns for Maryann(Grant's) love. For a TV movie, it was a fair stab at putting together believable dialogue and plot. The scenery and production was really excellent - the film overlapped outdoor settings with indoor music settings.
