Rated NR

An incredibly predictable plot takes away only a very little from this charming film by Maggie Greenwald. Janet McTeer plays Lily Penleric, a musicologist in early 20th-century America who discovers the songs of Appalachia while visiting her sister's mountain school. Aidan Quinn plays the mountain man with whom she first bickers, then falls in love. Yeah, I know, but the music and the mountains are so pretty that the hackneyed story seems only a vehicle for delivering a gorgeous little film that is much more about atmosphere and effect than plot and story. Strong performances by Pat Carrol as an elderly Appalachian midwife and Jane Adams (who was so great in Happiness) as Lily's lesbian sister enhance this engaging little movie.
