If you liked 'Young@Heart,' check out 'Unfinished Song' (aka, 'Song for Marion')
on May 9, 2014
Steven Ramm's excellent review makes two of the main points I was going to make about this sweet, underappreciated film: first, that 'Song' is essentially a fictionalized version of the brilliant documentary 'Young@Heart'; second, that Amazon's list of actors leaves out both the great Terrence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave. Gemma Arterton, Christopher Eccleston surely deserve their place on the mantle, but this film is about these four actors.
Two other things about the film of note:
Gemma Arterton - This classically beautiful British girl is in top form here. Speaking of which, do yourself a treat and check her out in the tragically under-watched Tamara Drewe.
Box Office - 'Song' only made $1.7m in US domestic box office. That's a shame. I hope people discover it online. It couldn't help that this movie was called 'Song for Marion' almost everywhere else in the world.
