Holy cow, this was bad
17 April 2018 | by potterpanfanSee all my reviews

I went into this movie expecting a more historically accurate, if still sweet telling of the von Trapp story. Well, it is more historically accurate in that in keeps the original names of the children and mentions that Maria and the Captain had more children together, but other than that it is basically an abridged version of The Sound of Music.

Granted the story is told from the eldest daughter, Agathe's perspective but I still wanted to see more of their lives in America and not just what I already knew. Not only that, but the acting is so bad in some parts (particularly the scenes in the present with an elderly Agathe and her granddaughter) that I was reminded of a Hallmark movie. However, I liked Eliza Bennet as young Agathe and how she develops a relationship with her new stepmother. But it wasn't enough to save this movie.

After seeing this, I'd rather watch The Sound of Music on a continuous loop than watch this movie again.
