    A well-crooned country tune can invest even the hoariest cliches with honest feeling, and in much the same fashion, The Song takes a familiar tale of love, marriage, betrayal and redemption, and delivers a largely satisfying rendition.

    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.

    At a certain point, however, I began to treat The Song as a kind of guilty pleasure, a not particularly good movie that nonetheless entertains in spite of itself.

    The thing is, the music that Jed, Shelby, and their respective bands make is actually pretty good. The performance footage is polished enough that it looks like it could be plucked from a TV show like "Nashville."

    Striking nary an unfamiliar note, The Song sluggishly lurches towards its predictable conclusion — spoiler alert, Jed sees the error of his ways — but it does offer some pleasures along the way.

    The melody may be as old as the Bible, but The Song could have benefited from a fresher voice.

    Not your everyday Sci-Fy or teeny-bopper apocalyptic film.
    A real-life, real problems, raw, clean, romantic, fun, heartbreaking and altogether charming movie.
    It gave me so much hope as we have only been married a little over a year and some of the conversations this couple had throughout, are arguments that we've hashed out as well. It is so uplifting to see that there is hope for us. I love it!
    Highly recommended.
    We need more movies like this!
