Why Arthur is such a curmudgeon remains a mystery.
July 3, 2013
Williams isn't going to offer anything but the most expected answer in the most expected fashion.
July 2, 2013
Simplistic, but blessedly so, Song is only out to warm up its audience, inducing tears and smiles as three actors keep the production palatable despite its serious lean toward a manipulative disaster.

Unfinished Song is shameless hokum, but it should please its target audience.
June 28, 2013
If Mr. Holland's Opus and the senior singers documentary Young@Heart had a baby, this would be it.
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 28, 2013
Terence Stamp is a rock star.
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
[Unfinished Song] is a British film that's sure to fly under the radar this summer, which is a shame since it's an entertaining little story about love, regret and aging.
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
Stamp's Arthur becomes the core of Unfinished Song. His risky performance takes no emotional prisoners as he dares us to hate an incorrigible old coot who can't see the good things before his own eyes.
June 27, 2013
If you're an inveterate softie looking to hydrate your eyes, yes...can't bear the thought of missing good work by Redgrave and Stamp, maybe...low tolerance for having your intelligence insulted (or dreadful renditions of "Love Shack"), it's a definite no.
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 27, 2013
Aims for zany and strikes out constantly.
June 26, 2013
A manipulative assemblage of tear-jerking cliches...But it has Stamp and Redgrave, who play Marion and Arthur with such conviction that one almost buys into it.
June 25, 2013
Manages a tear or two, and enough laughs to get by, even if from first scene to last the strain to stop just short of cloying shows.
