Thoroughly sweet, comfortably familiar, and elevated by the chemistry between Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons, Hearts Beat Loud offers feel-good father-daughter drama. Widower and aging Brooklyn hipster Frank starts a band with his teenage daughter Sam just before she leaves home to attend college in California. When a song of theirs finds success online, it complicates Frank’s attempts to let go of his dreams of stardom and allow his daughter to find her own path in life. Haley engagingly traces the arc of the father-daughter relationship while deftly avoiding sentimentality. And he elicits fine performances from a splendid cast.

The best way to enjoy cinema magic is to see it with others and share the experience of unique films. Laugh together, cry together, learn together, applaud together.
