It appears that while the film Song For Marion is sticking with that title in the UK, in the US it’s going to be known as Unfinished Song, as that’s the name this American trailer gives for the movie. Whatever it’s called, it looks corny but potentially fun, with Gemma Arterton getting a bunch of old folks to sing.
The film is a London-set comedic drama about grumpy pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) who is reluctantly inspired by his beloved wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) to join a highly unconventional local choir. At odds with his son James (Christopher Eccleston), it is left to choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) to try and persuade Arthur that he can learn to embrace life. Arthur must confront the undercurrents of his own grumbling persona as he embarks on a hilarious, life-affirming journey of musical self discovery.
It hits UK cinemas on February 8th.
