Hear My Song

An English concert promoter (Adrian Dunbar) who hopes to revive a failing theater club as well as his relationship with his girlfriend (Tara Fitzgerald) books someone who might be the famous Irish tenor Josef Locke. Years earlier Locke fled the country after being charged with evading taxes, breaking the heart of the mother of the promoter’s girlfriend. The singer turns out to be an imitator and the promoter is denounced as a fraud, whereupon he and a friend (James Nesbitt) set out to find the real Locke (Ned Beatty), who’s now hiding out in Ireland, and bring him back to England. Peter Chelsom makes his directorial debut here; he wrote the screenplay with Dunbar (1991). (JR)
