A Musician helps a young singer find fame whilst his age and alcoholism sends his own career into a downward spiral – IMDB Review

Many viewers that watched the movie probably left the cinema in shock and were emotionally wrecked by how it played out (no spoiler alert, don’t worry).  We’ve seen the affects of drugs and alcohol for many years, we’ve seen the TV ads and huge billboards.  

We, as the audience, only see what is in front of us and not behind the scenes, unless we read the newspapers and TV which most of the time doesn’t really cover everything about what is really going on.  

You have one shot to prove you’re worth it, and once that time is over the curtain falls.  And you’ll see how this mental and emotional rollercoaster affects the artist. Artists nowadays are expected to find ways to re-invent or change their image to keep up with the pressures of fame.  

We watch and old musician who’s time is about to run out hand over their torch to a new up and coming singer.  He sees passion, beauty and great potential in her which attracts him to help her out.  He believes in her and that is his drive to get her onto a platform where she is recognized for her talent and not failed by her looks as she stated what stopped her going for it previously.  

Two people in parallel worlds collide and go on a journey together, although it leads them to separate eventually.
