    The heartland drama Jackie & Ryan may prove too low-key and deliberately paced for less patient viewers, but distinct pleasures are to be had from this compactly shot film's easy rhythms, affecting tone and nicely modulated performances.

    It uses a terrific score of bluegrass and old-timey songs, many of them written by Nick Hans, to underscore the connection and to evoke a fundamental American spirit epitomized by traveling musicians with banjos, fiddles and guitars.

    The sunny, soap-and-water characters and thoroughly upbeat message may not be the stuff great films are made of, but in Jackie & Ryan the modesty of the story, the simple story-telling and honest emotions all come together in a satisfying whole.

    There’s not much to Jackie & Ryan, which is what almost makes it something special.

  • Guy Lodge

    Mellow, digestibly sweet and embellished with lovely folk tunes, this modest bit of Americana reveals pleasing new sides of both leads.

    Heigl’s performance is more brittle, kind of her signature but also required in playing a woman going through a divorce. She has rarely given a bad performance, even if the films she picked were failures.

    The film comes undone in its clumsy attempts to transform its story into a parable of economic distress.

    Jackie & Ryan is, in the final analysis, perfectly serviceable cotton candy.

    Jackie & Ryan is supposedly all about learning how to git where ya gotta go, but none of the characters start or end in particularly interesting places.

    The tepid Jackie & Ryan's only real strength is its supporting cast.

    Despite its manifold flaws, Jackie & Ryan is still oddly watchable.

    This underdeveloped romance seems to be lacking an act, or two, or maybe even three. But it’s filled with such great music that the emotions are there regardless. Not unlike "Once," the movie itself feels like an excuse for the music. And as with "Once," that’s not always a bad thing.

    Barnes, on the other hand, is the macho-sensitive singer coeds dream about. He plays guitar and repairs roofs, proving that sexy and useful is a winning combo. Barnes reminds me of a young John Hawkes — with a little bit of Nick Drake.

    The cross-cutting duet it builds to, with two people singing the same song separated by hundreds of miles, is a nice musical moment, but just that: a moment. Ideally, even a low-key romantic drama should have more than one.

    Barnes & Heigl take their characters the distance provided them by the story, which is not very far. Full Review
