A spectacularly meticulous and unerringly observant piece of cinema that is as
good as a dramatic narrative film can ever be, and one that instructs all the
pretenders in that category exactly how they fall so short time after time.
Everything about it is perfectly right and I'm astounded that I'd never heard of it before or that the entire film world didn't rise up as one and give it every honor. A
4.5. The film is good, but I rate it so highly because of the wonderful Austin and Texas musicians, songs, and scenery of the Texas Hil Country. As a huge fan of Townes Van Zandt, I was intrigued by the script as well, for while the romantic exploits of troubadors are often explored in film, to do so from the perspective of a child from one of the musician's flings isn't so common.
2.5 Appreciated the casting of the two sisters--great to see unconventionally beautiful women. Liked that the interloper was a woman for a change, and that she didn't conform to received ideas of nonviolent, passive femininity. Not sure the plot was entirely thought out, but it was thought-provoking. This film and "Wild Rose" (2019) both star U.K. singers who come to Nashville to discover something.
Everybody loves a good movie about someone's talent. This movie was exciting in the way that you saw two sisters become reunited and then become successful within singing. Singing is always a good story. Nowadays there are many singing stories and this did a good job of standing out and being interesting. Good acting and good camera shots throughout the entire movie.
