About the Movie
The Song follows aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell) as he struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. After reluctantly accepting a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival, Jed is love struck by local beauty Rose (Ali Faulkner), and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose 'The Song,' which becomes a breakout hit. Thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation in the form of fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas), Jed's life and marriage begin to fall apart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The actors, none of whom have much experience, are quite convincing, but the story - Jed falls, then sees the error of his ways - is an oft-told one.
Rotten: A ceaseless, hurtin' tune of a music-driven romantic drama, "The Song" plays out its tired refrain with all the subtlety of a Sunday sermon.
Rotten: A faith-based parable that draws from the Bible as much as it does from every perils-of-showbiz cliche in the book.
Don't believe in Rotten Tomatoes review. They aren't considering the movies' massage.
This was the best movie I have seen in a long time. It's a must see. It's picture of life and things we strive to attain are so true.
One of the best movies I've seen
GREAT MOVIE! I would say this is like Walk the Line and Once. Loved the cinematography, the story adaptation is brilliant, loved the music and really felt like the characters are believable. I love the fact that it brings to life "to everything there is a season" and Song of Solomon. It's gritty and authentic. Something every couple (married or dating) should see, as well as individuals.
