Can a song redeem a life? Schematic, sentimental. Almost undone by midfilm reveal. But Crudup, music compel.
Zigs and zags across basic plausibility line. Crudup's sincerity and script's contrivances in uneasy dueland other performances not nearly as consistent as his. But at least it's distinctive.
