Storyline

The One I Wrote For You is an inspirational, family-oriented feature film set to release in 2014. The movie tells the heartwarming story of Ben Cantor, a talented, 30-something songwriter and musician who gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to finally hit it big when his precocious ten-year old daughter secretly enters him into a Reality TV show songwriting contest. Though burned by a record deal years ago, past his "prime" to make it as a pop star and concerned they'll change who he is, Cantor enters the contest after being encouraged by his wife, Alicia, and former manager, Mickey. As he struggles through his doubts and overcomes formidable opponents in the competition, Ben's journey captures the hearts of millions of viewers - including his own daughter and wife - touching all those who follow his rise to stardom, fall from grace, and eventual return to what matters most: his family. Written by David Kauffman

Must see family film
5 December 2014 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

This reminded me of films that I saw as a child. Every aspect of the movie was golden. Great story, acting, singing, and directing. If you have a dream, reach for the stars and see this film. Andy Lauer does a fine job directing and putting this story together that David Kauffman wrote. The music covers a wide spectrum, so everyone will have favorite song. This film is PG rated, so no worries about children seeing a bad scene. Come out and support this film, so this good film can make a difference to many across the country. Kevin Polluck might be able to get an Oscar nomination based on his wonderful performance. Help spread the news.
