Review: Hearts Beat Loud

That summer before university is fertile ground for coming of age stories, but the roles are inverted in Hearts Beat Loud. Daughter Sam has her life planned out, choosing to spend her last holiday at home taking extra classes before school begins. Her dad Frank is not so certain, after seventeen years, he can no longer afford to run his record store. A lifelong musician, both father and daughter unwind by making music together in a kitted-out rehearsal space at home.
