About the Movie
A teenage girl learns that reaching for your dreams isn't always easy in this heartfelt drama with music. Terri Fletcher (Hilary Duff "A Cinderella Story", "Cheaper by the Dozen") is a small-town girl with a great love of music and a fine singing voice. Already one of the lead vocalists in her church choir, Terri has also appeared at local nightspots with some help from her older brother. When he tragically dies in an auto accident, Terri becomes all the more determined to make the most of her talent, and she's elated when she's accepted as part of a summer study program at one of California's most prestigious music schools; however, Terri attends over the stern objections of her father. As she tries to hold together her relationship with her family, she finds herself falling for one of her fellow students, Jay (Oliver James), and competing for attention against dozens of kids whose talent rivals her own. Also starring David Keith and Emmy and John Corbett.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even the kindest reaction to Raise My Voice is likely to be 'shut your face.'
Rotten: The filmmakers make a big show of striving for sincerity and substance, but they so load the dice that their movie is heavy-going from start to finish.
Rotten: All we can do is marvel at how the mighty -- Northern Exposure hottie John Corbett (as a weirdly flirty music teacher) and Risky Business babe Rebecca De Mornay (as Duff's frisky aunt) -- have fallen.
Rotten: The movie is the most fun kind of terrible.
Hilary's Best Movie To Date!
I love all of Hilary's movies, but this one in my opinion is definitely her best. Totally underrated. The only other movie of hers that could possibly top this one is her new film "Greta". BUY IT!!!
even though i didnt buy this movie for my ipod touch, i have seen it at my house like a bilion times and... i still get emotional! this is a great movie. BUY IT! (unlike me)
I've seen this movie over and over and love it. I've seen her performance live in 2005 the album Most Wanted. She is incredible. Her talent, her voice, makes you wanna watch it numerous times. I wish she would create more albums similar to the older albums.
