Silent Serenade
21 November 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I was in the mood to watch something with Amy Adams in it and came across 'Moonlight Serenade'. A film about music and with Adams singing, what's not to look forward to? I thought it would be a pleasant break from the overload of action, thriller and toilet humour comedies scattering theatres these days.

However, 'Moonlight Serenade' could have easily been a stronger movie. The story is very simplistic and has been witnessed before as it's very much the typical musician story. The execution is a big let down. It has a TV movie feel to it. The cinematography is flat and the pace is quite slow. The atmosphere in the film feels dull too.

I liked how the songs were placed smoothly into the situations like part of the story.

Alec Newman, Amy Adams and Harriet Sansom Harris perform excellently. It's good to finally see Harris in a movie with a substantial role for her and she sings very well too. Even though I personally didn't like all the songs, Newman and Adams sing beautifully. So what 'Moonlight Serenade' has working for it are the performances.
