Critic Reviews for Music Within
The real world needs more dogged folks willing to tilt at windmills. But movies often don't do their stories justice, and that has happened again here.
Pimentel's persistence and eventual triumph over prejudice and discrimination is a story worth telling, if only on a shoestring.
Salawich's film is entertaining and leaves you with warm feelings from learning about this man who turned adversity into good for so many others.
This offbeat biopic is driven by Ron Livingston's engaging performance as Richard Pimentel, a gifted public speaker who lost his hearing in the Vietnam war and then spearheaded the disability rights movement in the U.S.
This is a nice little well-meaning idea for a movie, but even with three writers on the payroll, it never really catches fire.
I wanted to like this film
Audience Reviews for Music Within
The story of a guy that is remarkable and accomplished great things. Although at times I feel the story is too much about his personal life than his professional life which brings his accomplishments. Some great people's lives do not make great movies.
After school special made watchable by the cerebral paulsy guy.
Could this story have been told better? Yes! But, fantastic performances by Ron Livingston and Michael Sheen. Makes the movie worth your time. This story deserved to be told and I am so glad it finally was.
