Audience Reviews for La Canción de Brian


In my opinion the updated version of Brian's Song does a good job at what it was trying to accomplish which was highlight the friendship between Brian and Gale but wasn't as good as the original. It had good acting and the same great story but the character portrayals weren't as likable this outing. B

Football and the civil rights movement serve as backdrops for a moving friendship drama. I can't compare it to the original, but it's a solid made-for-TV movie on its own. The sets are pretty low-budget, and the acting is weak in parts, but the strong dialog makes up for it. The production captures the feel of the era, even down to the ivy at Wrigley Field.
