The Song (2014) Rated PG-13

the-songA songwriter’s song that he wrote for his wife takes him to stardom at the cost of his marriage and family. Starring Alan Powell, Ali Faulkner, Caitlin Nicol-Thomas.

This isn’t the best film out there but I rather enjoyed it. I loved the bible verses intertwined during the story, as the songwriter comes to realize what is important in life and what isn’t.  The actors did a fantastic job at pulling you into the story and caring about these characters. The music sometimes worked, at other times, not so much. The film does have a contemplative feel especially as it showcases the songwriter’s thoughts with biblical verses. The only thing that bothered me was the lackadaisical faith that the songwriter had; there didn’t seem to be a true conversion experience for him. The other thing I struggled with was the wife always putting her father above her husband. When a woman leaves her parents’ house to be married, the husband should take precedence over the parents. This film is still  worth a watch.
