Critic Reviews for Song One
Despite the delicate shadings Hathaway brings to the role, Song One moves inexorably from wan to wearying.
There are no real surprises here, just lives played out quietly and succinctly under the seductive spell of music.
In her feature debut, writer/director Kate Barker-Froyland tends to tiptoe away from the dramatic high notes that audiences often crave and comes up a stanza or two short from a fulfilling resolution.
The film, like the world it's part of, remains just a little too precious, a little too self-involved, a little too insular. Instead of singing out, directly to us, it hums its little tune only to itself.
Starts off as a singularly strong slice-of-life drama before dissipating into thin air.
Audience Reviews for Song One
I couldn't get into it. I watched most, but it's very long and slow moving (actually it's not long at under 90 minutes, but it feels it). It's not bad as such, but I was bored.
Predictable with questionable acting in places, especially from the big names. But the excellent folk soundtrack and soundtrack in general makes up for it.
