The story may be a bit too melodramatic, but great performances abound in Songcatcher. The real reason to see the movie, however, is the hypnotic music.

Like the main character, it's stodgy and didactic -- and full of grace and surprises.
Songcatcher unfolds at a leisurely but enjoyable pace, its dramatic contrivances never pushed too hard by director Maggie Greenwald.
No matter how purely sung, the music keeps getting lost in the melodrama.
A wonderfully crafted movie in a minor key.
Tall, big-boned Janet McTeer ... is the ideal actress to play Lily Penleric.
A beautifully crafted story about a time and place rarely captured on film.
an uneven path, like the mountainous scenery itself
Never overcomes its overly familiar story and structure, even with some catchy traditional music generously spread throughout.
In this exceptional film, mercifully free of the usual warm and fuzzy movie sentimentality, director Maggie Greenwald and her fine cast shatter most hillbilly stereotypes.
This slice of trenchant Americana, grabs you by your lapels, churns you up a bit, and soon has you slapping your knees with blissful exuberance
the presentation [of mountain music]evokes its deep emotions and a beauty that comes from life experience, not the pre-packaged pap courtesy of slick marketing types.
Buy the soundtrack. Skip the film.
Lovely small film with beautiful music.
Lily always had a wide-eyed stare, no matter what emotion she was showing. There were lots of random events, unrelated to the story line and the movie was fairly predictable overall.
The film, about a female music scholar's study of Appalachian mountain music, is slow, but the music is SO worth it.
