Strong period piece
9 June 2017 | by white_trash_moonSee all my reviews

If you want to walk into a film knowing very little, this may be the review to convince you to go. For people who are over twenty years old, this may evoke memories of where you were when. Periodically there are times when most United States citizens became more civil, more caring, and more compassionate.

If you were raised enjoying the sound of a Gibson guitar, harmonies, and songs you knew the words to, this will resonate on so many levels. If not, this movie is a sweet introduction of ballads and timeless tunes. The supporting characters are vibrant and equally well acted.

If you are not particularly partial to a a tidy romantic comedy, all the better.
