|Lions Gate Films | Release Date: June 15, 2001||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Whenever the movie threatens to become just another visit to hillbilly-land, the music starts up and the film's gentle, irresistible wonder takes hold. Songcatcher is a film very much worth catching.
Essential viewing for anyone who cares about American popular music and its roots.
Somewhat sanitized but gorgeous Americana, with another impressive turn by McTeer.
A good subject has been ill-served by Ms. Greenwald's cliched script and clumsy direction.
