Always Woodstock (2014)



Critic Consensus: Despite a likable cast, Always Woodstock's lightweight plot and grating lack of romantic tension never engage.

Movie Info

Aspiring singer, Catherine Brown (Allison Miller), finds herself living a life she never imagined. Stuck at a dead end job in New York City at a mega music record label, Catherine spends her days as the 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 fiance (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 a 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 Sagal). As she and Noah start to fall in love, Catherine realizes that becoming successful means becoming your true self first. (C) Gravitas Ventures

Critic Reviews for Always Woodstock

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

Sex and swearing notwithstanding, the movie plays like an ultra-lightweight sitcom pilot, with Allison Miller and James Wolk as the adorably embattled soul mates who flirt and squabble and second-guess each other and themselves.

April 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Even by its genre's comfort-food standards, this movie feels blandly circumscribed, almost child-proofed, as if any sharper reality or wit might be harmful to the intended audience.

November 16, 2014 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, Merson clutters her sometimes soulful, sensitive story with too many formulaic contrivances to impede Catherine's personal and professional progress.

November 13, 2014 | Full Review…

This is a movie that runs on magical thinking.

November 13, 2014 | Full Review…

Another week, another benign rock and roll romance.

Any film justifies its existence when it gives Katey Sagal a chance to sing.
