Film "Unfinished Song" 2013-11-18 19:00:00
Description

UNFINISHED SONG

Director: Paul Andrew Williams   UK, 2013, 94 min; rated G

“GENUINELY HEARTWARMING!” –Boston Globe

Remarkably, Vanessa Redgrave is 76 and Terence Stamp is 74. Back when British cinema was young and angry, these two stood at the centre of the creative storm. Now that the same cinema has become a tad geriatric, here they still are. A lucky thing. With anyone else, “Unfinished Song” would be nothing more than saccharine. Our aging stars shine right from the get-go, etching an incisive portrait of a solid marriage in its 11th hour. Even with her grey hair matted from the last round of chemo, Marion’s an inherently ebullient spirit. Terse and sombre, Arthur takes his joy in life from one source only – his wife. Marion belongs to a seniors choir run by young Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton), a freckled gamine who enjoys encouraging the oldies to rock on down to the likes of Love Shack. –The Globe and Mail
