A Musical Olive Branch
Flora, played with heartfelt depth by Eve Hewson, finds the guitar in a dumpster and decides it could be a way to bridge the gap between her and her son, Max. With Max’s disinterest in the guitar, Flora embarks on her own musical journey, taking online lessons from Jeff, portrayed with understated charm by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
A Gritty Start
The film begins with a gritty and somewhat hopeless tone, mirroring Flora’s life. She seeks solace in wine, weed, and wild nights out. However, the discovery of the guitar and her determination to learn to play it gradually shift the narrative from discord to harmony.
Eve Hewson’s Powerful Performance
Eve Hewson’s performance is a standout, displaying a range of emotions from expletive-laden rants to heartfelt moments with Max and tearful renditions of Joni Mitchell songs. Her portrayal of Flora’s journey is both relatable and captivating.
While Flora and Jeff initially appear as opposites, their bicontinental chemistry evolves, revealing shared struggles and dreams. Even through video chats, their connection becomes palpable.
John Carney’s Expertise
