The High Note is a a really fun movie about music, love, and friendship. It is the perfect escape from the current world and a great movie night film.
After watching the trailer for The High Note, I admit, I thought it was be OK. I didn’t expect it to be a movie I would watch more than once, and I certainly didn’t expect it to be something I would love as much as I did. But it pulled me right in. The music, the drama, and the acting all makes this a must watch summer film.
Tracee Ellis Ross absolutely crushes her role as Grace. Also, I need her wardrobe from this because WOW, she looks absolutely stunning in every scene. I have never been a big Dakota Johnson fan but she is good in this. Not my favorite, which I expected to happen, but she didn’t annoy me in it either. Which is a win, trust me.
The plot itself is intriguing. The High Note is all about the bustling business of music in LA. Maggie, played by Dakota, is Grace’s assistant. But she wants to be a music producer. There are some heavy undertones of how it is to be a woman in the music industry. This hit home for me as a woman in an industry that is mostly men as well.
Overall, The High Note is a lot of fun, and teaches some good lessons. It is a story of love, friendship, and music. With not as many choices of new entertainment this year, it is a pleasant surprise.
