The Song will be in theaters this weekend (9/26/14), and it looks like it could be interesting. I love movies that focus on music, and the film was shot on location in Nashville and Kentucky - I visited Nashville this year for my first trip there, and it definitely earns its nickname as Music City. The trailer also has a lot of violin in it, and I am a violin player (and love when I hear violin music in movies).
THE SONG is a music-driven romantic drama about things we all pursue—love and meaning.
Aspiring singer—‐songwriter Jed King is struggling to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his famous father when he reluctantly agrees to a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival. Jed meets the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose, and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose “The Song,” which becomes a breakout hit. Suddenly thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation, his life and marriage begin to fall apart.
More about the movie:
THE SONG was filmed on location in Nashville and Kentucky – known for Americana music and family. Both figure heavily in the film. Music is more than a score in THE SONG, it is the backdrop from which the story unfolds. Viewers who love American music, indie singer-songwriters or dream of the allure of the road, will especially love THE SONG.
Produced by a top-notch group of story tellers who believe in love, faith and family, THE SONG is opening nation-wide including resources to strengthen couples and families.
It looks like the movie will be opening locally at the AMC Forum (Sterling Heights, MI) and the AMC Star Great Lakes Crossing (Auburn Hills) this week, according to Fandango.
I may try to catch it at some point, it looks like it could be good.
Will you see The Song when it hits theaters this weekend?
