A little messy with the story line a little sketchy. It was just about feel good factor but if they had just stuck with reality a lot more it could have been epic real touching it didn’t have to be the musical only it could have strayed from that a little. The dark parts weren’t as genuine because of the way things were lightly covered no depth. A little disappointing from Eastwood he has directed some really heart felt movies…. million dollar baby, letters from Iwo Jima, gran Torino need I go on…
It was good it was feel good having never seen the play its definitely a feel good movie.
Played a few four seasons songs when I got home and I loved the scene where they played “my eyes adored you” best bit of the movie for me
This version on YouTube doesn’t do it justice http://youtu.be/qR2u9lLAq8c
But overall 3 out of 5 stars
