Music calms us, excites us, brings us together. It can even melt the hardest of hearts. In Unfinished Song, Arthur (Academy-Award nominee Terrence Stamp) is a grumpy old pensioner who would like nothing more than to hide away from the world. Although his cheery wife Marion (Academy-Award winner Vanessa Redgrave) loves to sing and involve herself in life, Arthur wants nothing to do with it. But when tragedy strikes and Marion passes away, Arthur finally decides to join her unconventional local choir to honor her wishes and add some spice to his crotchety old life.
Unfortunately, old ways die hard. Arthur is just as embarrassed and cantankerous in the choir as we have come to expect, but he sticks with it, determined to honor his deceased wife’s request. Under the direction of the choir director, Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton), Arthur’s curmudgeonly exterior begins to melt. Elizabeth shows him that there is more to life than bitterness and anger, and that it’s never too late to change your tune. Arthur realizes that he must confront the roots of his own grumpy self in order to move forward. Unfinished Song tells the hilarious and life-affirming story of Arthur’s journey towards happiness.
Written and directed by Paul Andrew Williams, this Weinstein Company comedic drama will see a limited release on June 21, 2013. Unfinished Song also stars Christopher Eccleston. Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and rude gestures.
