Our next Rialto Recommends is 2001's SONGCATCHER starring Janet McTeer. Written and directed by Maggie Greenwald, SONGCATCHER tells the story of Lily Penleric. After being denied a promotion at the university where she teaches, Doctor Lily Penleric, a brilliant musicologist, impulsively visits her sister, who runs a struggling rural school in Appalachia. There she stumbles upon the discovery of her life - a treasure trove of ancient Scots-Irish ballads, songs that have been handed down from generation to generation, preserved intact by the seclusion of the mountains. With the goal of securing her promotion, Lily ventures into the most isolated areas of the mountains to collect the songs and finds herself increasingly enchanted. CNN said "A beautifully crafted story about a time and place rarely captured on film." While the LA Times said "As good as the acting is, it's music that propels this story of life cloistered in the Blue Ridge Mountain" SONGCATCHER is available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, and Vudu HERE.
