The Song of Sway Lake 2017
R | 1h 40min | Drama, Musical, Romance | 21 June 2017 (USA)
Music collector Ollie Sway recruits his only friend, a rowdy Russian drifter, to help him steal a 78 record from his own family’s estate.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for language, graphic nudity and some sexual content
This is a good movie, with several well-defined and strongly portrayed characters. The first few minutes of the movie were the weakest, with some voice-over and some scenes from the past that would have been better presented as flashbacks later in the movie, once we are invested in the characters and the story.
Note. It was a pleasant surprise to see Elizabeth Pena in a new movie, three years after her untimely death. It was a small role, but one with heart, worthy of her.
