This is a movie that will tug on your heartstrings. It's filled with heartache, frustration, confusion, happiness, hope, fun, determination, love, anger, despair, reconciliation, and ultimately the happy ending that we all hope for.
The movie hinted at what the rock scene was like in the late sixties and early seventies without actually getting into the ugly of it. I didn't feel uncomfortable with my children seeing it. No vulgar language, no inappropriate relationships, no nudity, nothing I wouldn't sit down and watch with Jesus... which is a good thing, because I did. ~smile~
Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta were amazing as Ryan Wade's parents. The emotion and depth of conviction were convincing. Blake Rayne was The Identical. His talent was displayed brilliantly in his music. He played his part in the movie with skill, passion, and sincerity. The music was really good.
Amy said, "Extremely sad and extremely serious, but I think you'll like it. Once you start the movie, you don't want to pause it for anything."
Emily said, "It's a good story of how are dreams play into God's grand scheme of things."
