QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A woman strives to make it in the music world and must contend with sexism and then the aftermath of her beyond her wildest dreams success.
PLOT:

It's 1966 and Helen Reddy (TILDA COBHAM-HERVEY) has flown from Australia to New York City where she believes she's going to have a record contract. But she's informed that there's little demand for female artists and thus is relegated to performing live in small dinner clubs.

Her luck seems to change when she meets fellow Aussie Lillian Roxon (DANIELLE MACDONALD), a music critic also living in NYC who's writing an encyclopedia on rock and roll artists. They became fast friends and at a birthday party that she's throwing for Helen, the young singer meets Jeff Wald (EVAN PETERS). He not only sweeps her off her feet, but later convinces her that they should move to Los Angeles to build her career from there.

After the move and their marriage, he's busy managing acts ranging from Tiny Tim to Deep Purple, but she's bored at home and wonders when her turn will come next. She eventually forces him to pester a record label exec until the latter gives in. That man does, Helen knocks her demo out of the park, and it's then off to the races and the top of the charts as she begins delivering one hit single after another.

But with success going to his head and cocaine clouding his mindset, Jeff's behavior begins to put a strain on their marriage, even while she continues to become one of the biggest recording artists in the world.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens might have some interest if they're into the music scene, but it's highly unlikely most have ever heard of Helen Reddy.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: Not Rated
The film isn't officially rated by the MPAA, but is the equivalent of an R due to profanity and drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
