A Review about the movie, “Raise Your Voice”
This is about a young woman named, Terri Fletcher (Hillary Duff), who’s fond of singing to herself, but never in public. She is always afraid to raise her voice to the world. However, she and her brother, Paul Fletcher (Jason Ritter), is sharing the same dream, for Terri to be a famous and successful artist, so he secretly captured her talent and then sent it to California’s most famous music school.
Paul was very excited about the application that he asked Terri to go and sneak with him to see a concert. On the way home, a truck hit them that killed Paul. Terri became very traumatic about it, especially when seeing a light ray; it reminds her of her brother’s death. She became very depressed about the incident that she blames herself of it. Until they received a letter from her dream school, saying that she was admitted and that, the school has offered her a spot to the following school year. Even though it’s her dream school and that every aspiring artist would die to be admitted to this school, she has no plan of accepting their offer, for she’s thinking that by accepting the offer could also mean that she’s betraying her brother to leave him alone, not knowing that her brother sent the application himself.
But her parents told her that this could also be a good opportunity for her to take a break after everything that has happened. By pursuing her and her brother’s dream could also give her a way to be far from home, far from traumatic memories of her brother, to be freed from her guilt. She then, accepted the offer and went to California.
She didn’t know what’s awaiting there for her but she’s hoping that somehow her brother will help her pursue their dreams. She brought nothing but her talent and her inspiration with her. She feels so alone, until she met Jay Corgan (Oliver James).
He is also a student in California Music High...
