Julianne Moore plays a famous soprano who ends up a hostage when she travels to a South American country to give a private concert. Bonds develop while in captivity, including hers with a rich Japanese businessman (Ken Watanabe). There are several subplots that were probably explored more deeply in the novel, but the premise still develops with sensitive storytelling and compelling performances, exploring common humanity with some interesting developments along the way. Incidentally, Moore is lip synching to Renée Fleming’s voice and although she looks credible, it doesn’t sound like it’s coming from her.

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
