Review: American Harmony

Filmmaker Aengus James sympathetically captures the trills of victory and the agony of defeat at the International Championships of Barbershop Singing in American Harmony, an efficiently constructed and emotionally involving documentary with a sharp eye for revealing detail and a pleasing amount of low-key charm. It's kicking off a limited theatrical run today at Houston's Angelika Film Center and other theaters, and you can read my Variety review here.
