I’ve said it once, and I’m sure I’ll say it a hundred more times: star power can make or break a film. Penny Serenade isn’t a bad film, or even a bad story. In fact, a quiet and absorbing drama could have been made using this story, this director and these actors. But somewhere along the way, Penny Serenade decided it wanted a huge dollop of unnecessary schmaltz added on top, and that is w... read more
