Flora and Son is a light and mostly enjoyable musical movie that offers plenty of laughs but falls short of making any real connection with its original music. Streaming on Apple TV+ after playing a couple different film festivals recently, this was easily one of my most anticipated movies of the year, especially given the musical and story strength of writer/director John Carney’s previous works. Despite not completely engaging with the story, the reality of what happens in the film is incredibly believable and likely true to what learning a new instrument is like in the present.
