Song One

Romantic drama with Anne Hathaway as a young archaeologist who, after learning her estranged brother is in a coma, returns home to Brooklyn. As she discovers more about her brother's life, she comes across his favourite musician (Johnny Flynn) and inadvertently starts a relationship with him.

"Desperately seeking clues to his recovery, she dips her toe into the Brooklyn music scene he inhabited, attending a concert by his singer/songwriter hero, James Forester. When James unexpectedly visits Henry’s hospital room, a spark kindles between Franny and this reticent stranger. In the vibrant coffeehouses and clubs they frequent, love and grief intermingle. Franny discovers a new appreciation for her family and the possibility of truly connecting with people, rather than living life solely as an observer." (Sundance Film Festival)

Perhaps the cleverest thing about Barker-Froyland's delicately contrived debut is how uncontrived she manages to make it seem.

A mournful number, held back by an uncertain performance by Flynn and an alienating reverence for the restorative power of middling indie-folk.

The delicate drama is sweet and sincere but a tad thin to resonate.
