Movie Info

Some may find the rabid devotion of Rick Springfield's fans perplexing, but if his 17 Top 40 hits, including "Jessie's Girl", or his run on General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake didn't convince you, watching him blast out live performances with straight-on charisma and spontaneously dropping in on fans most certainly will. Somewhere in between the introvert plagued with lifelong depression and the 60-something extrovert who still performs 80 to 100 high energy concerts a year, lies the real Rick Springfield. A fascinating look at a singular, multi-generational celebrity culture, An Affair of the Heart is a soulful examination of contrasting individual connections revealed through common universal threads of humanity. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for An Affair of the Heart

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

While she creates an affectionate portrait of the charismatic musician, helmer Sylvia Caminer is really concerned with the meaning of fandom; anyone harboring an inexplicable or arcane passion could conceivably be interested.

Minor curio about Rick Springfield's devoted fan base has less weight than a VH1 Behind the Music special.

Affair of the Heart's focus is so vaguely sketched out that it ultimately could be about any grateful artist who enjoys a modicum of celebrity years after his initial success.

An agreeable documentary about the pop singer Rick Springfield and his legions of female fans ...

It doesn't matter how many of these moments are self-flattering; the subtext is clear enough.

Top Critic

Although it veers dangerously into whitewash territory several times, the movie wears its heart on its sleeve, which is appropriate for a film full of Springfield's poppy hard-rock music and the unbridled enthusiasm of his loyal fans.
