Niagara Gazette — Written and directed by Paul Andrew Williams, the movie revolves around the choral group and whether or not Marion’s recovery from cancer has made her strong enough to participate as far as the group’s guiding light, a music teacher, gently played by Gemma Arterton, would like to see it go. Arthur is ever-watchful for even the slightest bit of exhaustion on Marion’s part. The couple has a son, strongly-played by Christopher Eccleston, who's a car mechanic,. He loves his parents, but his relationship with his father is prickly at best. In the men’s eyes, you see the care and concern they have for each other, even if they can’t quite express what they are thinking.
As this unabashedly emotional and terrifically honest film flows, it takes a turn that will result in Stamp recognizing the notion that Marion’s love of singing, especially regarding her solo, was her way of delivering some poetry into his life.
The performances from Redgrave and Stamp are as good as it gets. They are both in their mid-seventies and bring decades of experience to what is a master class in acting.
The beautiful “Unfinished Song” is a rare treat in a sea of summer action mayhem. The choral group is comprised of delightful seniors who are very keen on singing good old rock and roll. To reference a Rolling Stones song, they are cool, calm, and collected. And so is this sweet and touching movie.
"Pacific Rim" is director Guillermo del Toro's entry in Hollywood's breathlessly overdone blockbuster season. a traditional amalgam of science fiction and horror, but with a bit of a twist.
What we have is basically Godzilla versus Transformers, but there’s nothing wrong with the concept if it's put together correctly. Director del Toro delivers a stylish take on a standard theme. The movie is about the possible end of the Earth, when human-controlled robots are forced to battled gargoyle-like creatures that emerge from a fissure under the Pacific Ocean.
