Hearts Beat Loud Movie Review
Heartwarming, engaging and fueled by rich music, Hearts Beat Loud is a satisfyingly enjoyable drama starring Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons. Neither groundbreaking nor forgettable, the Brett Haley follow-up to The Hero manages to win you over with a wonderful script, great performances and a feel-good story.
Offerman delivers what could the best performance of his career and Clemons (Neighbors 2) matches him beat for beat. Playing father and daughter musicians who find themselves on the verge of a big break, the two have terrific chemistry with one another, which in turn elevates the material to another level.
Hearts Beat Loud may not have a lot of lasting power, but it’s a delight to watch, and even more importantly, experience.
This movie screened at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF 2018).
