All Together Now sits firmly in the genre of films that make you worry and feel sad, but rewards you with tears of joy at the end. It’s about a teen with big musical talent played by Auli’i Cravalho.
Hearts Beat Loud appears to be a simple story about a father and daughter as she prepares to leave for college. It seems simple, but it’s actually emotionally intricate and complex. Like some of the music in this film, it’s complicated while seeming simple. It’s perfectly written and acted. It’s a wonderful movie. I give it all the stars.
