Story


Shot in England's County Durham with great support from the community, "Unfinished Song" is a London-set comedic drama, about grumpy pensioner Arthur (Stamp) who is reluctantly inspired by his beloved wife Marion (Redgrave) to join a highly unconventional local choir. At odds with his son James (Eccleston) it is left to choir director Elizabeth (Arterton) to try and persuade Arthur that he can learn to embrace life. Arthur must confront the undercurrents of his own grumbling persona as he embarks on a hilarious, life-affirming journey of musical self discovery.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film is ultimately about the redemption of Arthur, him finding his heart and reconnecting with his son before it's too late..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]
“..Stamp finds more honest (and less condescending) humor in his grumpy character, who is forced to take center stage and mount a rebellion when the choir's participation in a competition is threatened by a totally contrived obstacle..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..and I liked the message that what makes a song beautiful is not always the quality of the voice singing it but the heart and soul behind it..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
