After connecting with the shy Madeline, a jazz trumpeter embarks on a quest for a more gregarious paramour, but through a series of twists and turns punctuated by an original score, the two lovers seem destined to be together.
The closing credit roll takes up 12 minutes of the 90-minute film. See more »
The opening drive into Chicago begins southbound on Lake Shore Drive, then northbound on LaSalle (you'll recognize it from the Batman films), then south on Wabash, then suddenly across the river, coming east on Washington, where the car finally stops at the Lyric Opera building. The interiors were shot elsewhere, so nothing looks like the actual hall. See more »
You think you can bargain with me? You're not in control, Tom. The audience is control. And right now, I'm your audience.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Very fast paced and exciting. I recommend this.
"I play piano, this is just another gig. Nothing else." Tom Selznick (Wood) is one of the most famous concert pianists in the world but 5 years ago he had a breakdown on stage and disappeared. Finally ready to come back to the art form he loves he stages a comeback appearance. He is as nervous as he as ever been when he starts to play, then he sees a note written on his music that makes him forget about his stage fright. The only problem is that his next note may be his last. As you know by now I watch as many movies as I can without watching the trailer first. Going in I was thinking...a movie about a piano concert with Frodo, sounds exciting (sarcasm). From the beginning I was intrigued and then it hit me. This movie is nothing like what I expected at all. A movie I expected to be about love of classical music ended up being more like Speed or Phonebooth. It was tense and exciting the entire time and I really liked it more then expected. Overall, keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Very fast paced and exciting. I recommend this. I give this a high B+.
