Good film about mountains of NC and mountain music and folklore.

Unfolds at a leisurely but enjoyable pace, its dramatic contrivances never pushed too hard. Full Review

The haunting beauty of the music, and the people who produce it – that's the chapter and verse of this story. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Greenwald is fine at creating the texture of early mountain life but loses her footing by embracing several plot points at once. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Somewhat sanitized but gorgeous Americana, with another impressive turn by McTeer. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
A good subject has been ill-served by Ms. Greenwald's cliched script and clumsy direction. Full Review
