Movie Info

THE SONG follows aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell, Anthem Lights lead singer) as he struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. After reluctantly accepting a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival, Jed is lovestruck by the vineyard owner's daughter, Rose (Ali Faulkner, TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN), and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose "The Song," which becomes a breakout hit. Thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation in the form of fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol- Thomas, "Nashville"), Jed's life and marriage begin to fall apart. (C) Samuel Goldwyn

Critic Reviews for The Song

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

With its strong performances, musical and otherwise, this romantic melodrama is many cuts above the faith-based norm.

Top Critic

The performances are uniformly fine, which keeps things involving. Powell, in particular, is terrific.

September 26, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A faith-based parable that draws from the Bible as much as it does from every perils-of-showbiz cliché in the book.

September 26, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A ceaseless, hurtin' tune of a music-driven romantic drama, "The Song" plays out its tired refrain with all the subtlety of a Sunday sermon.

September 25, 2014 | Full Review…

The actors, none of whom have much experience, are quite convincing, but the story - Jed falls, then sees the error of his ways - is an oft-told one.

September 25, 2014 | Full Review…

Predictable, faith-centric film about marital fidelity.

October 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
