Performances for your consideration
29 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is simple enough about love and loss and old folks finding joy in music, but it is so much more. This is a film for anyone who has ever loved, lost, or been less than perfect. In other words, it is a film for everyone. All the reviewers have mentioned the stellar performances by the lead actors and that is definitely true. This film does deserve awards for acting and directing. Vanessa is brilliant and Terence Stamp has come full circle from his "give us a song, Billy" days and has shown his magic has not diminished. I saw the film a few hours ago and I am still crying. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I almost missed it because it is in very limited release. This is crazy. There is so much fantasy and stupidity in films today, but an honest and important film like this just slips through the cracks.
