Song One

This week’s Hidden Gem is drama Song One starring Anne Hathaway, Johnny Flynn and Mary Steenburgen.

A young woman strikes up a relationship with her ailing brother’s favourite musician. Though this film may look very similar to the recent movie Begin Again, its plot line is quite different and the only similarities they share are that they are both romantic dramas where one of the main protagonists is a musician.
