The High Note Movie Review
Set in the dazzling world of the LA music scene comes the story of Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross), a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights, and Maggie (Dakota Johnson), her overworked personal assistant. While stuck running errands, Maggie still aspires to her childhood dream of becoming a music producer. When Grace’s manager (Ice Cube) presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever.
The film is directed by Nisha Ganatra (“Late Night”) from a script by Flora Greeson. It is produced by Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. The film’s executive producers are Nathan Kelly and Alexandra Loewy. Available via Home on Demand on May 29th.
3 Reasons to See The High Note
1. The Entertainment
Do I even need to say it? I am MISSING my time in the movie theater these days. With so much going on around the world, movies are a great escape and this film really does it AND with Video on Demand, you get to watch it in the safety and comfort of home. It’s well-written, well-cast and honestly just a pleasure to watch. I was HOOKED just a few minutes in! I’ll share a few more reasons why…
2. The Cast
I said it before, but it’s worth repeating: this film is well-cast. I loved Dakota Johnson as the assistant/aspiring producer, Ice Cube as the long-time friend and manager and Tracee Ellis Ross killed it as the star of the show, fully embodying her mother Diana Ross in a modern age. She was literally born for this role.
3. The Music
I think it may have been the music that hooked me. The characters in the film have a deep love for music and musicians and it’s woven throughout the movie. Music is enduring; and there are so many callbacks that make the movie deeply nostalgic. But then add in the performance of Kelvin Harrison Jr. and you’re sold.
So there you have it! Be sure to stream the movie ON DEMAND Friday, May 29th. I know I’ll be watching again and I’d love to know what you think of it!
