A keenly observed story of a Brooklyn father and daughter, charged with the kind of music as free-spirited as the duo is.

Music is so central to Hearts Beat Loud that it's connected to everything...Hearts Beat Loud is anything but sad.

June 28, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The story is barrel-proof earnest sentiment, straight no chaser. How to keep the eyes from rolling in response? Well, it helps to have Nick Offerman at the center of things.

June 22, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Writer-director Brett Haley...coaxes a few weak laughs from the daddy-daughter role reversal, and stale, mushy drama from the cycling death of the girl's mother more than a decade earlier.

This is a movie you not only want to see, but also to put on the turntable.

Haley engagingly traces the arc of the father-daughter relationship while deftly avoiding sentimentality. And he elicits fine performances from a splendid cast.

Audience Reviews for Hearts Beat Loud

Great film that showcases Offerman and Clemons unlike any other film. They are impressive and the talent filmmaker Brett Haley provides them with a film with depth and great support. Indie cinema was a little quiet this year, but Hearts Beat Loud is a great addition and deserves all the attention it will garner, it is not very often a film this interesting garners great reviews and audience appeal. This is indie cinema at its best and another reason why audiences and streaming services need to assist with keeping this genre alive. 24/12/2018.

This is the definition of fulfilling. Meaning, it effortlessly satisfies and rouses feelings of happiness due to the fact it fully develops its character and, in this case, accentuates their musical abilities. Hearts Beat Loud moves beyond the music though, and the irresistibly charming cast of Nick Offerman, Toni Colette, Kiersey Clemons, and Sasha Lane lend what could have otherwise been little more than a generic feel-good flick about the many phases of life and dealing with change more so; it doesn't hurt the music is pretty good too, but watching Offerman and Clemons play it together is the real treat. Wholly satisfying.

Nothing you haven't seen before in the teen, coming-of-age drama/family relationship genre. In spite of that the performances by Clemons and Offerman are good enough to elevate this film above the formula, and create a dramedy that tugs at the heartstrings.
