      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's unabashedly sentimental, but thanks to reliably powerful performances from a well-rounded veteran cast, Unfinished Song proves a sweetly compelling character piece.

      Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk Funny and heart-warming, it's a bit like Amour meets The Voice and The Full Monty. Rated: 4/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch The crescendo of two resonant careers makes the false notes of "Unfinished Song" forgivable. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 5, 2013 Full Review John Anderson Newsday Shamelessly sentimental, cute to a fault, but the acting is first-rate. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 4, 2013 Full Review Cory Woodroof Lumination Network Unfinished Song is a moving dramedy that highlights some strong acting and a deft screenplay. Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens There is nothing unfinished about Unfinished Song. It sings to the heart. Nov 27, 2019 Full Review Katie Smith-Wong Flick Feast The film is, however, saved by the strong performances from Redgrave and Stamp. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tony S I enjoyed this a lot, watching on Britbox, UK title for this movie is "song for Marion". It's a family movie, not afraid to be sentimental, a lot of familiar tropes, but well put together. Basically, an old husband, a grumpy old man (Terrence Stamp) accompanies his wife, ill and wheelchair bound (Vanessa Redgrave), to her beloved musical choir activities, and has a difficult relationship with his son who has a daughter. The choir leader (Gemma Arthurson) coaxes him to join. Through the magic of music, grumpy old man recovers his humanity and his relationship with his son. The performances were superb, particularly by Vanessa Redgrave, who was lutterly radiant, despite her advanced years, Terrence Stamp did a very good job of portraying a grumpy Grizzled old man who loves his wife, but has been worn down by the long years of caring, and doing nothing much else, Gemma Arthurson added excellent youth and vigour. Christopher Eccleston did a good job of playing the adult son worn down by his father‘s irascible behaviour. Very good choice of songs added to the tearjerker the writer/Director wanted, especially "True Colors" and Billy Joel's lullaby "Goodnight my angel" repurposed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Ashley H Unfinished Song is an okay film. It is about a grumpy pensioner pensioner who honors his recently deceased wife's passion for performing by joining the local choir. Terrence Stamp and Gemma Arterton give decent performances. The script is a little slow in places. Paul Andrew Williams did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture. I liked the motion picture because of the humor and drama. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/31/23 Full Review jill l Perhaps it takes a person of a certain age to appreciate this movie. Tearjerker. Losing a spouse. Facing mortality. Family estrangement. Redemption. And a cast of old people!! :) Yes, the choir portion of the story, though entertaining, is cliched, but the choir is not the key part of the story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review georgan g Sweet without being sappy, with the usual brilliant performances by Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The Sentiments Are There, But Pieces Of The Story Join Together All Too Conveniently. While That Can Be Nice, When You Want An Unthinking Piece Of Drama, We Are Never Enlightened Here. I Foundd It Frustrating The Father-Sons Enbittered Eelationship Was Never Given A Reason For Being That Way, Or Why The Father Was Such A Crank In The First Place. A More Thoughtful Exploration Of Things Would Have Worked Better For Me.Instead, It Was All Much Of A Muchness..& A Bit Of Old People Singing. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is basically a decent cup of tea on a wet drisly Sunday. It's exactly what you'd expect, it's completely predictable but that doesn't detract from it being touching and really heartfelt at times. Stamp singing Billy Joel at the end will have even the hardiest at least wiping away a tear. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
