| Dreams Deferred
Everyone over 40 has a dream deferred that sometimes keeps us awake at night. "Once More With Feeling" reminds us how life gets in the way of those dreams. Dr. Frank Gregorio's,Chazz Palminteri, immigrant parents wanted him to become a doctor which he did, but he dreamed to be a singer. Forty years later before his daughter's wedding he starts singing in karaoke contests- trying to live his dream.

Facing his successful day to day practice, Dr. Gregorio longs for the dream he had as a young man; maybe for a change of pace, maybe for some excitement, but mostly for himself--that one thing he still has within that will make him happy--at least he thinks so.

Set in suburban Connecticut amidst wedding plans for his daughter, babysitting the grand kids, aging parents, children with mid-life crisis, Frank's dream buys him some personal time and competes with his reality. Karaoke contests are the vehicle to stardom in Frank's eyes, but his reality has replaced his dreams with something more important to him.

The singing will not win an Oscar, but the sentiment can't be topped.
