"Four Last Songs"

It's listed as a comedy but this movie is quite a bit more than that. The plot revolves around an American pianist (Stanley Tucci) who is trying to put on a performance of classical music by a recently deceased composer. Along the way he encounters numerous obstacles including the composer's widow, his mistress and other characters. His circle of friends includes a bunch of misfits and oddballs including the always whacky Rhys Ifans and Hugh Bonneville. The movie isn't just a light comedy--there are some emotional and heavy-duty moments in it. This is one of those rare films worth watching several times. Highly recommended.
4.5 stars out of 5
