A wonderful film about jazz pianist, Joe Albany and his daughter Amy based on an biography/autobiography by Amy Albany. Gritty realism of life in skidrow residential hotels in Los Angeles contrasted with the glorious jazz piano music created by this man and his friends. A rose growing out of a dung heap.

Despite not being terribly fluent in the genre of jazz or its' musicians, aside from those with an iconic status, I found this film to be incredibly captivating. It is refreshing to witness a realistic depiction of the struggle to live with and defeat a narcotic such as heroin. The pace is slow at times, yet this aids the sense of realism from the actors portrayals and settings. The entire cast was impressive, in particular, Elle Fanning. If this performance is any demonstration of what Fanning is capable as an actress then she should pursue more roles similar to it.
