New-found respect for JK Simmons. He's great in role of typical 60's dad trying to recover what he can of the relationship with his son after a 20-year estrangement

A profound look at how one generation must humble themselves and learn the language of another generation in the hopes of mending broken relationships. We can all learn from it.

Hard to get into. The characters and storyline just felt forcefully dramatic. The over-excitedness over music was a miss too.

Oliver Sacks is my hero. Every year around this time I read the case study 'The Last Hippie' from 'An Anthropologist on Mars' with my psychology students. Everyone likes this bittersweet, hopeful, humanist adaptation.

Perhaps I am a sucker for all that is sentimental, or maybe it's my unabashed love for J.K. Simmons, but I loved this movie. Like...really loved it. Such a wonderful expose on the power of music.

At the worst it is soap opera-y, but the tale is one that hits too hard to overlook.

While it doesn't really satisfy completely there is a lot to like here, and you really can't do much better than J.K. Simmons, who is pretty much perfect.

If you love music, you will love this movie, especially if you love 60s/70s rock. I don't know how much of the movie was based on what really happened but this movie proves how powerful music is! I loved this movie and was crying all the way through it. I love J.K. Simmons!
