Funny and heart-warming, it's a bit like Amour meets The Voice and The Full Monty.
July 5, 2013
The crescendo of two resonant careers makes the false notes of "Unfinished Song" forgivable.
July 4, 2013
Shamelessly sentimental, cute to a fault, but the acting is first-rate.
July 4, 2013
The gentle story of a marriage, and of how music can help make a broken heart whole again.
July 4, 2013
Unfinished Song is full of predictably poignant moments; you'd be lucky to survive the film dry-eyed.
July 4, 2013
Why Arthur is such a curmudgeon remains a mystery.
July 3, 2013
Such predictable ingredients get stale all too quickly.

[A] modest, tear-jerking charmer ... Just don't expect too much more than what shows on its paint-by-numbers surface.
June 28, 2013
Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp and those voices - their solos contain this picture like carved book-ends, vintage and lovely and still so profoundly of use.
June 27, 2013
Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave would be captivating reading the nutrition label on a bag of crisps, so it's no surprise that they elevate "Unfinished Song"...
June 27, 2013
It's worth a watch, if just for Stamp's complex performance. Just don't forget to bring some tissues.
June 27, 2013
[A] sappy drama.
June 27, 2013
Blends the premise of TV's Glee with liberal splashes of recent older-skewing audience pleasers Quartet and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in predictable fashion.
June 27, 2013
[Stamp] and Vanessa Redgrave, as well as supporting actors Christopher Eccleston and Gemma Arterton, raise "Unfinished Song," Paul Andrew Williams's entry in the golden age genre, from mawkish to genuinely heartwarming.
June 27, 2013
Get out your handkerchiefs for an unabashed tearjerker that has some surprisingly potent moments. Buried in all the shameless sentiment is a touching family story, and good performances from veterans Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave.
June 27, 2013
When it's over you may notice red marks on your throat, so determined is "Unfinished Song" to strangle the audience into emotional submission.
June 24, 2013
It's all very predictable - including the competition the group enters, the tragedies along the way, and the final big-hugs-all-around ending.
June 21, 2013
I can't fault the actors or their performances... but it's Vanessa Redgrave who validates Unfinished Song.
June 21, 2013
The director, Paul Andrew Williams, at least had the good sense to cast Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave as his leads. Who can possibly look away from those two whenever they're on screen?
June 21, 2013
Williams fills his screenplay with nails that he can then hammer for the rest of the running time, so whether it's dying wife/mum/grandma or strained father-son relations that bring you to tears, the movie keeps pummeling you until you produce them.
