2 of 5

“..the plot, alas, is equally predictable. Though dying of cancer, Marion remains a dedicated member of the center's chorus, which is enthusiastically practicing for an upcoming musical competition..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..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]
3 of 4

“..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]

“..it may be the equivalent of NBA stars tossing crumpled paper into a wastebasket, but you're no less compelled to watch old pros go through the motions..”
by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York]

“..it may be hokum, but it gets to you..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

“..in the film, a comment is made about the power of a voice being not in technique but in the journey it took to get there. Stamp and Redgrave and living embodiments of that philosophy..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 5

“..but "Unfinished Song" is a movie so geared toward hitting its spots, it amounts to emotional Muzak rather than something truly played live..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..away from the choral setting, Unfinished Song is an uplifting ode to the celebration of life at any age..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
