Overview

In this Canadian film, overweight piano prodigy Junior Brown (Martin Villafana) searches for a piano because his goofy mother (Lynn Whitfield) severed the strings on the family piano. Since paranoid Miss Peebs (Margot Kidder), his piano teacher, won't let him finger her keyboard, he has to run scales on her dining room table. Fortunately, Junior has a friend -- troubled Buddy Clark (Rainbow Sun Francks) who lost his family in a fire when he was a young child. Buddy goes out with a teen runaway (Sarah Polley), and he helps eccentric school janitor Mr. Pool (Clark Johnson) construct a model of the solar system in the school basement. Junior's frustrations mount as his quest continues. Music includes Chopin's "Prelude No. 4." Shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival.

Junior's Groove is simply the best movie that I have seen in years. I have watched it four times now and each time that I watch it, I find some little tidbit of information about the characters that I had missed in previous viewings. You can't can't leave the room for a minute or you will miss something important to the plot. Junior's Groove is a charming movie with an ending that sneaks up on you. The characters are well scripted and delightful. Amazing little pearl!
