THE SONG - Resuming Tomorrow...

...after a couple of days off.  In the meantime:
Alan Powell as Jed King and Caitlin Nicol-Thomas as Shelby Bale.
"As Philip Pullman rightly points out, if you wish to influence people, ‘Once Upon a Time…’ is a far more persuasive beginning than 'Thou Shalt Not..’. I am always struck by how much supposedly classic fiction is about loss of religious faith or adultery, described sympathetically. These are the scriptures of the century of the self, and they have a huge effect on the way people think about such things. Good authors make the reader want to emulate, or desire the approval, of the characters in them. 
Films, by reaching direct into the watcher’s brain, have an even more powerful effect. A concept, presented sympathetically in a film, will take root where a speech or an article would not."  
-Peter Hitchens 

"I said to myself, 'Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.' But that also proved to be meaningless." 
-Ecclesiastes 2:1
Inspired by the life and works of King Solomon, THE SONG tells the story of a young, aspiring singer-songwriter whose marriage and life suffer when the song he writes for his wife propels him to stardom.
