| Urban Hymn Sings a Refreshing Song You Haven't Heard Before
Urban Hymn boasts a story line booming with talented vocals, but a screenplay with the delicacy of a harp. Indeed, there are clearly some talented writers behind the scenes, drumming a surprisingly human beat to which the actors move. The end result is a polished picture, with themes and moments that linger with the viewer weeks after the screen goes black. We follow Jamie Harrison in this plot, a troubled teen who has lost her way to the temptations of the inner city. By her side is a questionable friend, Leanne Dixon, who stands as a reasonably dedicated presence before her unpredictable behavior proves detrimental. Things start to look up for Jamie when Kate Linton (a tough as nails, yet understanding social worker) enters the picture, trying to steer her path in a more productive direction through music. Rich in both heart and heartbreak, Urban Hymn is the rare film that manages to build and break us in ways that don't feel canned or cliché. It is truly demonstrative of talented writing at play, coupled with a visual excellence matched only by big- budget Oscar-bait films. I recommend it highly, as it beyond impressed this jaded moviegoer's heart. Keep your ears out for this one; you won't be disappointed with what you hear.
