5.0 out of 5 stars A fictional version of "Young @ Heart"- These senior can rock out!, April 15, 2013
This review is from: Unfinished Song (DVD)
I saw this film yesterday at the WXPN Music Film Festival in Philadelphia (coordinated by the Philadelphia Film Society). I truly enjoyed it. I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't list the two actors with major roles and well-known names - Terrence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave - in the main listing. But no big deal.

The film is basically a fictional version of the documentary "Young @ Heart" which came out a few years ago. (If you liked that film, you'll enjoy this as well.)It's about a group of British senior citizens who enter a choral competition by singing rock and heavy metal songs. It's funny and heartwarming. There is a serious back-story too which adds to the enjoying. And the music is great with Stamp performing a Billy Joel song and Celine Dion crooning a new Diane Warren-penned song over the closing credits.

I'll certainly await the DVD of this film to see what "bonus features" they added.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Still 5 stars even though it's a complete knock off of Young @ Heart? Not very fictional at all!

You replied TWICE. You might want to remove one, and I'll then remove this. Glad you found my review helpful!

Steven I. Ramm -
This review must have been incredibly difficult to write without giving all of 'the reasons why' away; I tip my hat to you! You were still fully able to give the finer points away and keep the viewer still fully wanting to view this film ... Thank you for your lovely writing of the delicate points of this beloved film - and there are many!
The best to you,
Sheryl

Great review - spot on about both the Young@Heart parallel and Amazon's odd editing decision to not list Redgrave and Stamp. Bizarre.
