Trivia

The Tascam 4-track "Portastudio" cassette deck seen in this film was a revolutionary device, allowing a musician to record three tracks, mix them to the fourth track and then add more tracks. It supported external guitar-style effects processors, had a variable speed control for tuning and special effects, and you could even flip the tape for reverse recording. Originally introduced in 1979, it later evolved in to the current digital version. This would have been an ideal tool for the songwriter in this movie, as it was heavily used for demos. It could also be used for creating fully-produced elaborate arrangements as advanced as the Beatle's four-track system in their day. In fact, Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska album was actually created on one. See more »

Goofs

The mixing equipment in the late husband's shed, while passable for a band, was far more elaborate than would have been necessary for the music heard in the film, as (except for the "lost" song, which had a touch of piano) it was just solo acoustic guitar and solo voice. See more »

First 40 minutes great, last half of the movie falls apart.
21 February 2016 | by TxFlyboySee all my reviews

Watched this on VuDu on 2/20/16 and it was an engaging heartfelt movie that drew us in at the start, but then it began a slow agonizing death by the mid-point and by the end of the movie we were praying for the end. Any end. Just end it. The movie just falls apart in the second half. Almost as if the ending production was rushed because everyone was bored or ran out of interesting things to say and do on screen. There are so many wasted story lines in this movie that just seem to start, do nothing, mean nothing, and go absolutely nowhere. The only character that seemed to engage and hold our attention was the one played by Jason. 5/10. And I am being generous.
