Information and Film Reviews for Forty Shades of Blue the Movie

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Character study set in Memphis in which music industry legend Alan James (Torn), his much younger Russian live-in, Laura (Korzun), and adult son from a previous marriage, Michael (Burrows) are brought together when Alan is given a prestigious music industry award. The film unwinds painfully slowly as each character's flawed motivations and dark compromises are examined. Use of local music is a high point in this Sundance award winner.
