Meryl dominates the proceedings. She simply disappears into the role, and the movie, for all its educational impulses, becomes about watching her do it.

Doesn't revolve around a self-centered main character or possess the schmaltz of Mr. Holland's Opus.

Boring as it may have become for Meryl Streep to show up for awards ceremonies, count on her to be doing it again.

Most movies claiming to be based on fact pour on the melodrama, but this one basically just sticks to the real story, which has all the emotional wallop that's needed.

Meryl Streep delivers a polished, virtuoso performance that could earn her another well-deserved Oscar nomination, while Angela Bassett, Gloria Estefan, and Aidan Quinn deliver strong support.

Streep makes Guaspari's metamorphosis from self-pitying victim to impassioned activist seem effortless and, while a pro might spot flaws in her musicianship, her playing certainly looks and sounds genuine.

What saves this movie from being a Lifetime Channel tour-de-force is, of course, the winning performance by Streep.

Some movies you want to see. Some movies you need to see. Music Of The Heart is one of the latter.
