"Excuse me...have you seen a guy with a guitar case?"

Female student returns from her travels to be near her brother, comatose after a car accident; to 'bridge the gap' between them, she befriends her brother's idol, a folk musician. Anne Hathaway is an intelligent young actress whose savvy self-awareness defeats her here; she seems too aware of her sad smile and her sensitive gaze--she overworks both, trying to get us to feel something. Unfortunately, neither her quietly beatific face nor her constant walking up and down city streets (the camera tracking her intently) does much to build a character. Writer-director Kate Barker-Froyland throws a pity party for this child-woman, who blushes and squirms adorably when her mother brings up the long-ago past (1992!) and stares with pretty sadness when music conjures up tucked-away bittersweet memories. It's a forlorn valentine to phoniness. *1/2 from ****

tension free drama

Franny Ellis (Anne Hathaway) is in Morocco working on her anthropology PhD thesis. She returns home to NYC after her mother (Mary Steenburgen) informs her that her brother Henry is in a coma after getting hit by a car. He's an aspiring musician which she had argued against. She contacts his favorite musician James Forester (Johnny Flynn) to show him some of Henry's work. They develop a relationship.

Hathaway is doing good work. The story is dripping in sincerity but it doesn't have any intensity. The drama is kept at a very low key. There is simply nothing new or exciting. The story is so thin that it threatens to blow away.

Same Old Song

Estranged from her mother and brother after a trifling argument, PhD student Franny is photographing nomads in Morocco when she gets a message her street musician sibling Henry has been left in a coma after being hit by a taxi in NYC. She returns to the US to sit regretfully by his hospital bed, thinking up ways to rouse him from his oblivion. She soon discovers he admired another folk singer called James, and engineers a meeting with the young fellow at one of his gigs. The next day Franny is joined at Henry's bedside by this sensitive balladeer, and the relationship soon develops a lukewarm romantic element.

Unfortunately there's nothing remarkable about this unambitious project - the acting of the two leads is adequate, but the narrative arc of these characters doesn't possess sufficient vitality to make the film memorable in any way. There are no surprises, mysteries or dramatic moments as the gelatinous flow of this lightweight tale is broken up at regular intervals by some forgettable songs. 'Song One' provides little more than a slow-moving, low-key experience until it eventually arrives at a predictable conclusion.
