Metascore®Generally favorable reviewsbased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.
A good subject has been ill-served by Ms. Greenwald's cliched script and clumsy direction.
With a half-dozen characters sorting out life's woes, the pacing is a couple of beats faster than languorous — just enough to sustain one's interest.

There are mountain tunes as powerful as moonshine to be enjoyed in Songcatcher -- but there's also a mighty mushy heap of corn pone to be swallowed.
Perhaps too laden with messages for its own good, but it has many moments of musical beauty, and it's interesting to watch Janet McTeer.
Any film about the folk tradition is required to have a stellar soundtrack, and Songcatcher does not disappoint.
