Movie Reviews – “Song One” and “Manny” 


Two movies are now out in theaters and on-demand. First, we have “Song One” starring Anne Hathaway, Johnny Flynn, and Mary Steenburgen from writer-director Kate Barker-Froyland. Hathaway is Franny, a young woman dealing with her brother (Ben Rosenfield) who just fell into a coma. Grieving, Franny turns to her brother’s favorite musician, James Forester (Flynn).

In “Manny,” Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao enters the documentary ring and this one’s about his rags-to-riches story from his humble beginnings to his meteoric rise. “Manny” is narrated by Liam Neeson and is directed by Oscar-winner Leon Gast (“When We Were Kings”) and Ryan Moore.

Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look at my reviews of “Song One” and “Manny.”
