Missing a Note (2019)

A high school girl who is trying to get a scholarship visits a well known opera singer in the hope of getting a recommendation letter and finds all is not well.

A wonderful small scale drama about dementia is a winner. Excellent from start to finish this is a small moment in time played to perfection. This is such a lovely little film I’m not really what to say about the film, other than I want to see more. The characters in this film are so perfectly handled I hated to part with them. I wanted to see what happens next. I would gladly pay to see Elaine Page and Ian McElhinney reprise their roles as the older couple facing illness. I have no idea what should come next, as it should be since this film feels like life, but I would like to see it.

Missing a Note has qualified for an Oscar and is worth searching out.
