During quarantine you could do worse than streaming this movie, and that's mostly thanks to Tracy Ross, who brings her usual warmth and likability to the proceedings.

The High Note was a satisfying dramedy that will be greatly appreciated by music lovers above all else. If you're a fan of Tracee Ellis Ross or just the inner workings of the music industry, then this film will be right up your alley.

I think the movie says a lot about where the industry is and where young people searching for a break are in these times...

Ross does a great job both acting and singing the High Note...workmanlike, the cheesy filler that some types of people need right now...a basic comedy with terrific music.

The performances do a good job... with Johnson and Harrison making their way charmingly through tests of their professional / personal relationship. [Full review in Spanish]

The High Note satisfies that need for something pretty well done though redundant.

It has its flaws and trades shamelessly in clichés and stereotypes, but is not without a certain ragged charm and actually manages to be funny now and then. Oddly enough, it also entertained me.

The world of The High Note is a sun-soaked, music filled Los Angeles, where everyone gets what they want. It's a nice world to disappear into.

Most impactful is what The High Note has to say about the effort required for a woman like Grace Davis to achieve and maintain the success she has, even though it means stifling her own creativity.
