We’re closing out the season with a pick that’s somewhat surprising for a show with this premise: The Sound of Music. Yes, there is (or was until recently) someone who’d never seen this movie before.
As you likely know, The Sound of Music is the Oscar-winning film adaptation of the Tony-winning Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, starring Julie Andrews as a wayward nun-in-training and Christopher Plummer as the father whose kids she’s sent to care for as governess. Set in Salzburg, Austria before and during the Nazi occupation, it’s both a personal love story and a dangerous resistance adventure, both told through classic music.
Be sure to watch before listening because, as always, we spoil the whole plot. You can do that in the usual places – Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, Google Play – or check your TV listings as this one pops up not infrequently on the small screen.
