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.

Very nice romantic drama, with heart, Grant makes a lovely star
25 May 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Maryann (Amy Grant) is a gifted cellist and teaches music at the local high school. She is also blind, having been severely injured in an automobile accident that claimed the life of her parents and sister when she was an elementary-aged student. But, Maryann has spunk and gets around very well with the aide of her guide dog. The beautiful young musician also has nice next-door neighbors in widower Oliver (Keith Carradine) and his young daughter. One day, a famous modern pianist, Gregory (D. W. Moffett) comes to Maryann's school, for he has chosen her youth orchestra to play with him in a special concert. It seems Greg's career needs a publicity boost and he's always looking for his next big hit. Also, the pianist is single, as is Maryann, and after an initial dislike, the two start stepping out. Complicating matters is the news that Maryann may be eligible for a cornea transplant, something Gregory urges her to pursue. But, does the piano man really have room in his life and heart for anyone but himself, as he is rather egotistical? Could it be that Maryann has another suitor close by? This is quite a lovely film, predictable, but nice. Grant is truly beautiful as the main star and handles the acting role with ease. Moffett, Carradine and all of the other cast members do fine work, too. What a darling guide dog, too! The small city setting is pretty while the costumes are well selected. Despite the script's familiarity, it still has a touching story to tell and the smooth direction keeps it going. So, if you are a dyed-in-the-wool romantic, you will be happy to discover this film, as I did, on the bargain rack. Not only will you get a fine flick for a small sum, you also get a Grant CD in the same box, making the sale even better!
