Storyline

An homage to Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid", Done Four Productions' inaugural feature "Charlotte's Song" tells the story of Charlotte (Katelyn Mager), a young girl coming of age in the midst of one of the most desolate and desperate periods in American history. Set in the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl, the untimely death of Charlotte's mother triggers a downward spiral for her father, five sisters and their family-run song and dance act. Help comes from an unlikely source when a gangster named Randall (Iwan Rheon) offers to pay off their debt in exchange for making some unsavoury changes to the family business. Matters are complicated when it is discovered that Charlotte, like her mother before her, is in fact a mermaid capable of controlling humans with her voice. What follows is a sophisticated magical turf war in which antagonists from many camps seek to take advantage of Charlotte's power. The best and worst of humanity are put on display and Charlotte must choose her ... Written by anonymous

Terrible Audio
26 February 2019 | by steelebeamSee all my reviews

Tried watching this film on Hulu: the audio editing was so bad I couldn't watch more than 17 minutes, with the music loud and the talking soft I gave us due to the need to adjust the remote constantly, which is a shame since the film looked interesting. It's not my television and I doubt it's a Hulu problem since all other programs and films are fine.
