I was lucky to see this film on the big screen and I'm glad I did. The cinematography was stunning, the setting beautiful. I love a movie that truly embraces the locale, making use of the unusual and unique features that we may not otherwise experience. The film adeptly brings together this fantastic sense of place with a beautiful, if not haunting, score to create the backdrop for a very interesting story and character study.
Skillfully directed and well cast with two fantastic leads , the story is centered around Jack, a piano prodigy who carries the weight of more than just his own personal fears and regrets, but that of a community who's expectations are perhaps too high. It's a thoughtful story that rings true to anyone who has dealt with the fear of failure - and the pressure of success.
