Great film about following your musical aspirations
12 February 2015 | by stjoallandSee all my reviews

I watched "The Beat Beneath My Feet" last night at the Berlin Film Festival and it was great. It's a beautiful story, executed with style, and the three leads deliver strong performances. In particular, Luke Perry of "Beverly Hills 90210" fame excels as a down-on-his luck musician with a dark secret who hides on a council estate to avoid being jailed for tax evasion. He's extremely moving and memorable as a damaged soul seeking redemption who finds healing through a dorky young neighbor, played by convincing newcomer - Nicholas Galitzine - who is hell bent on being a rock star despite his crippling shyness. The cool soundtrack, in the vein of Coldplay, underscores the story beautifully as well as the animated sequences that highlight the central character's fears and fantasies. "The Beat Beneath My Feet" is a heartfelt, entertaining, feel-good comedy from the UK that I'd highly recommend. Thumbs up to the team behind the film.
