Always Woodstock is a well intentioned film but it’s falls into many of the tropes seen in so many character dramas (as mostly recently as This is Where I Leave You) but the lead actress, Allison Miller is so damn charming and almost makes the entire movie well worth at least one viewing… almost.

THE MOVIE

Aspiring singer, Catherine Brown (ALLISON MILLER), finds herself living a life she never imagined. Stuck at a dead end job in New York City of a mega music record label, Catherine spends her days as life wrangler for the label’s most difficult star (BRITTANY SNOW). But when Catherine is unceremoniously fired, and then comes home to find her long time fiancé (JASON RITTER) in the arms of another woman, she decides that it’s time for a change.

Selling off her engagement ring, Catherine moves back to her family home in Woodstock, to get back to what she has always wanted to do: write music. One night at the local bar, Catherine stumbles into handsome town doctor Noah (JAMES WOLK), and cannot deny the moment of magic between them. Little by little, Catherine starts to find herself, and write music, with the help of local legend, Lee Ann (KATEY SEGAL). As she and Noah start to fall in love, she realizes that becoming successful means becoming your true self first.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included.

VIDEO – 4.0/5 | AUDIO – 4.0/5

Always Woodstock is presented with an anamorphic 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and mostly looks good with vibrant colors and minimal aliasing. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is strong providing clear dialogue levels and giving depth with the various music choices both in-movie and with the soundtrack.

OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, Always Woodstock is a well intentioned film but it’s falls into many of the tropes seen in so many character dramas (as mostly recently as This is Where I Leave You) but the lead actress, Allison Miller is so damn charming and almost makes the entire movie well worth at least one viewing… almost. The DVD released by Anchor Bay Entertainment is pretty basic with no bonus material but acceptable video/audio transfers.
